Ex-KU aide hired

June 17, 2004


Bill Pope, the student manager on Kansas University's 1988 NCAA men's basketball championship team, has been hired as an assistant coach at Louisiana-Lafayette.

Pope was an aide at Youngstown (Ohio) State last year after serving six seasons as head coach at Lincoln University in Jefferson City, Mo.

Pope is the first assistant named by new UL-Lafayette head coach Glenn Cyprien, who was hired last month off Eddie Sutton's Oklahoma State staff.
