Van De Velde: ‘Point guard’ in C-USA move
Bruce Van De Velde knew right away what he was going to do this weekend following Friday afternoon’s press conference dealing with Louisiana Tech University’s official acceptance of membership into Conference USA.
“I’m sure I’ll be breathing a sigh of relief, then turning my phone off,” laughed the Tech Athletics Director.
Well, he has certainly earned those privileges.
For months on end that probably seemed like years at times, Van De Velde has been one of the key individuals helping Tech make the move into a much more regionally-based conference with a high national profile.
