In letter to fans, Alleva writes LSU's new head football coach must win
BATON ROUGE - In a letter to fans Friday, Joe Alleva wrote about the search for the next LSU head football coach.
Alleva said the coach will need to create a culture of excellence and character in all aspects of the football program. Championship level play is expected every year, Alleva said.
Recruiting will need to be second nature for the next coach; Alleva wrote: the coach must attract "the most gifted student-athletes" and instill "pride and confidence in parents who entrust their children to our program."
The coach must have winning instincts and be able to motivate players and hold them accountable for their behavior both on the field and off.
Alleva said he understands fans are expecting the best candidate.
"I take this responsibility very seriously and know the most important job I currently face is hiring the right head coach, leader and role model for the young athletes who choose to study and play for LSU," he wrote. "I’m very confident we will hire a man possessing all of these traits to be the head coach of our beloved Fighting Tigers."
