LSU host Bobby Hebert ejected from press box
Outspoken Entercom WWL-AM New Orleans radio host and former New Orleans Saints quarterback Bobby Hebert got a little too excited and was subsequently escorted from the LSU press box during the fourth quarter of the LSU-Alabama game. The LSU Tigers’ 21-17 loss to Alabama on Saturday night caused an excessive disturbance from Hebert.
“Several writers around him complained and said his actions were becoming a problem,” LSU associate sports information director Bill Martin told The Daily Reveille. “We warned him and asked him to calm it down multiple times. It wasn’t fair to those around him trying to work.”
Hebert, whose son T-Bob played at LSU from 2008-11, also infamously chastised LSU coach Les Miles at the news conference after January’s BCS title game.
Martin said LSU officials haven’t discussed whether Hebert’s second press incident at a game could affect his future credential status.
“We haven’t thought about that yet,” Martin said. “There was so much chaos at the end of the game and postgame obligations for us. It’s something we’ll sit down with, I’m sure.”
Martin said Hebert offered no resistance or rude words during his ejection or after any of the preliminary warnings.
There were a record 947 credentialed media members in the LSU press box on Saturday, part of the largest crowd in Tiger Stadium history.
