Sources: Grambling lets Shawn Walker go as hoops coach

By Steven J. Gaither

What do you do if you are a basketball program coming off its best season this millennium? If you are Grambling, you fire the man that guided you there.

Shawn Wallker is out as Grambling’s head coach, according to his Facebook page, as his contract was not renewed. GSU officials told HBCU Gameday via email they cannot confirm nor deny Walker’s alleged departure.

Walker led Grambling to a 16-17 record this winter, winning more games in one season than the program had in its previous five combined. And more than the program has one in one season since the turn of the century.

A former Elizabeth City State player and coach. Walker led GSU to a 25-68 record in three seasons.
