Brad Holland’s 13-year run as basketball coach at San Diego ended Thursday when the school bought out the final year of his contract. Holland, the former UCLA and Lakers point guard who prepped at Crescenta Valley High, was 200-176 at USD with one NCAA tournament appearance and no regular-season West Coast Conference championships. The Toreros upset top-seeded Gonzaga to win the WCC tournament in 2003 and advance to the NCAA tournament. “I love it here,” said Holland, whose twin daughters graduated from USD. “I always felt it was a good fit for me and the university. It’s frustrating that it came to an end.” The Toreros were 18-14 this season and fifth in the WCC. “We need to move our program so that we’re competitive in the upper quartile of our conference, so that we’re competing for the conference championship,” athletic director Ky Snyder said. LSU women’s basketball coach Pokey Chatman said she won’t coach the team in the upcoming NCAA tournament, and The Times-Picayune of New Orleans reported on its Web site the resignation was prompted by the school’s discovery of inappropriate conduct between Chatman and one or more players. The newspaper, citing university sources, offered few details, saying it was unclear when the alleged transgressions took place. ESPN.com reported LSU had found out about an improper sexual relationship between the 37-year-old Chatman and a former player. Chatman is 90-14 at coach of the 10th-ranked Lady Tigers (26-7).
