    the next LSU head coach.

    One night in Orlando, the phone rang in Bertman's hotel room. His wife, Sandy, picked it up, and after a disbelieving moment became excited when she realized it was former President George Bush.

    "She gave me the phone and I said, 'Mr. President,'" Bertman recalled. "He said, 'I normally don't get involved, but I'd like to recommend somebody.'"

    That somebody was former Texas A&M coach R.C. Slocum. Bertman and the entire LSU search committee did meet with him.

    "He's a man's man, a gentleman," Bertman said of Slocum. "But we wanted a sitting head coach."
