Karl Malone To Coach at Louisiana Tech

Jeff Goodman at reports that Karl Malone may be headed back to his alma mater (and mine) to coach basketball. Goodman writes:

Kerry Rupp, who is expected to be officially introduced later this week as Louisiana Tech’s new head coach, is close to bringing former Bulldogs and NBA star Karl Malone on board as an assistant coach. has learned that the 43-year-old Malone, selected as one of the 50 Greatest Players in NBA history and a two-time league MVP, is seriously considering joining Rupp’s coaching staff.

Malone was chosen with the 13th pick in the 1985 NBA Draft after a three-year career at Louisiana Tech in which the Bulldogs were 74-19. Louisiana Tech went to the Sweet 16 in 1985.

I’d love to see Malone take the Bulldogs to the big dance again. Whether or not he’s the man to do it remains to be seen. In any case, I’ll still be pulling for my beleaguered Dawgs!
