SEC: LSU turns to Jones, plus spring football roundup

Two big issues this SEC weekend, starting with LSU basketball. The Tigers will introduce former Dale Brown assistant and North Texas head coach Johnny Jones as their new head coach on Monday. The hope is Jones will be able to do a better job of tapping Louisiana’s talent than did his predecessor Trent Johnson, who left Baton Rouge to become the new coach at TCU.

The other league news came from several spring games held Saturday. Alabama, Auburn, Georgia and Vanderbilt all held their spring football games. Vanderbilt continues to gain momentum. The Commodores drew 8,500 to Vanderbilt Stadium for their spring game on Saturday. Josh Grady, a quarterback-turned-receiver, ran for one score and threw for another.
