Grambling Men’s and Women’s Head Basketball Coaches Reassigned
Grambling State University recently reassigned head men’s basketball coach Bobby Washington and head women’s basketball coach Donnita Rogers to positions within the department, ending their three and four-year tenures with the programs respectively.
“I’m upset,” Washington said. “I understand this business and if you don’t win, you’re out. I took over after a kid died and we shocked the world in Shreveport when we beat Jackson State. Then we go to the SWAC championship game for the first time in history.
“I understand the interim tag at first, but after that, they offered me two contracts and pulled the both back. At that point, don’t string me along. If I’m not your guy, say so and I’ll move on.”
