BATON ROUGE – LSU head basketball coach Will Wade released a statement Thursday morning asking the LSU Board of Supervisors to lift his suspension.

Wade was suspended indefinitely following media reports of a wiretap investigation.

A 2017 phone conversation between Wade and a middleman tied up in allegations of illegal recruiting tactics features Wade discussing a “strong-ass offer” he made in the recruitment of a prospect, Yahoo Sports reports.
