JONESBORO, Ark. (AP) -John Brady is the new basketball coach at Arkansas State.
Brady was hired Wednesday, less than six weeks after being fired by LSU. He replaces Dickey Nutt, who stepped down as coach Feb. 19.
Brady led LSU to the Final Four in 2006, but the team finished 17-15 the following season. He was fired after the Tigers started 8-13 this season.
At LSU, Brady was 192-139 in 11 seasons. Before moving to LSU, he had a 89-77 record in six years at Samford.
After Nutt resigned, former Arkansas coach Nolan Richardson expressed interest in the job. Richardson, who has been out of college coaching since being fired by the Razorbacks in 2002, spoke with Arkansas State officials. Last week, Richardson said he was no longer a candidate for the job.
