Richard Lipsey, former chairman of the Louisiana Board of Regents, is calling for sweeping reforms to be made at the top of Louisiana State University. 


​In light of the drama around suspended head basketball coach WIll WadeLipsey instead called for the termination of two other senior officials in Baton Rouge. 

Lipsey advocated for the dismissal of University President King Alexander for what he calls a "lack of leadership." LSU has been plagued not only by the recent basketball scandal, but also disturbing revelations surrounding the school's fraternity system after a student died while pledging the Phi Delta Theta chapter. 


Additional allegations are arising following the recent developments around the school's Delta Kappa Epsilon chapter as well. Lipsey attacks Alexander for accepting the position at LSU without any prior experience with Greek leadership, especially at a school heavily influenced by Greek life such as LSU.

And while the nation assumes guilt on the part of ​coach Wade, it is Lipsey who instead places the blame on athletic director Joe Alleva, who suspended Wade prematurely, according to Lipsey.  


One can only hope the right people are disciplined in this scenario.
