Tic Price takes over Lamar Basketball

Former New Orleans and McNeese head coach Tic Price has been appointed interim coach of the Lamar Cardinals following the firing of head coach Pat Knight on Sunday.

Price conducted his first practice on Monday afternoon and conceded he has a tough job a head of him since the players are so down about losing their head coach and not being able to win.

Price stressed that he is the interim coach and won't make a decision to apply for the full time job until after the season.

He had been serving as athletics coordinator for the University since 2011, when he was a member of Coach Steve Roccaforte's staff.
