Trent Johnson has resigned from his position as the LSU men’s basketball head coach.

Johnson is expected to take the TCU men’s basketball coach. However, LSU athletic director Joe Alleva would not disclose where Johnson is headed.

TCU has a press conference scheduled for Monday to announce a hiring involving the men’s basketball program. The Horned Frogs have been without a head coach since Jim Christian left to become the Ohio Bobcats head coach.

Johnson has been at LSU since the 2008-09 season after previously being the head coach at Stanford for four years. He guided the Tigers to the 2008-09 SEC Championship.

He was 67-64 overall at the school. The team was 18-15 this season.

“Sometimes coaching changes work out well for all parties involved, and we will take this opportunity to seek out the best coach for the long-term future of LSU men’s basketball,” said Alleva. “I wish Trent all the best in his new job.”
