Chuck Person speaks up

Hey everyone. If Jeff Lebo gets fired, which remains to be seen, it's reasonable to believe Chuck Person will be a target. The former Auburn star now spends his days as a special assistant with the Los Angeles Lakers, but he was in Nashville tonight being recognized as an SEC Legend.

I think he fits the bill. He was an All-American choice twice.

Anyway, he said some interesting stuff about the Auburn situation ... and his possible involvement.

  • On the program's current state: ``Basketball is important to me at Auburn. I understand the dynamics of their football situation out there ... but Auburn can win in basketball as well as football if you get the right players."

  • On if he'd make the transition to college coaching: ``I think I'm kind of institutionalized when it comes to the pros: 15 years as a player, 10 as a coach or an executive in the front office. If the opportunity presents itself ... you want to be able to be a head coach at the highest level. Obviously, the pros would be my first choice ... but if I could get to a good college job in a good conference ... I would look into it."

I've heard that Chuck is trying to finish up his degree. He played four years. He shouldn't have that far to go.
