Using The Eugene Robinson Handbook

Southern University athletic director Greg LaFluer didn't learn from Eugene Robinson's mistakes. Instead he used his handbook om how to get arrested for soliciting a prostitute.

LaFleur was busted in a reverse prostitution sting by undercover officers Sunday night in Houston. The ironic thing was that he was there looking for candidates to be the school's head basketball coach. I know all this is under investigation, but Southern may be looking for someone to fill LaFleur's job if this charge holds up.

LaFluer is free on bond right now, and I'm sure he won't do any real time. But possible job loss and the embarassment of having this go public is bad enough.

LaFleur has been Southern's athletic director for six years. The Ville Platte, La., native and former LSU star tight end and receiver played with the Philadelphia Eagles, St. Louis Cardinals and Indianapolis Colts in the NFL. He's also the father of Gonzaga center Robert Sacre.

I'm sure Sacre will hear it when he goes on the road next season.
