Grambling State Fires Volleyball Coach Who Cut Entire Roster

Grambling State fired its volleyball coach Chelsey Lucas on Tuesday, according to a statement from the program’s athletics department. Lucas was with the Tigers for less than five months.

Grambling State said Lucas was fired after an internal investigation. The program plans to begin a search for its next volleyball coach this week.

Lucas, a 2007 Grambling State alum, became the team’s head coach in February. She quickly made major headlines when she decided to cut every player on the team in April, telling all 19 players individually that their scholarships would not be renewed.
