Will Wade

The standoff is nearing an end. Suspended basketball coach Will Wade is scheduled to meet with LSU and NCAA officials on Friday, agreeing to speak after more than a month of silence. The school confirmed the news Thursday when Sports Illustrated requested a comment on the impending meeting.

It ends a 34-day stalemate between the two sides and begins what could be a long-winding process to reinstatement.

The 36-year-old Wade, who in two years turned LSU from an SEC cellar-dweller to the regular-season conference champion, had reportedly refused to speak with NCAA officials after a March report by Yahoo Sports indicated Wade had been recorded on a federal wiretap making suspicious statements regarding recruiting activities.
