Grambling coach Broderick Fobbs was present for the SWAC’s weekly coaches’ teleconference Monday where he addressed questions concerning nepotism charges filed against him and his father, Lee, with the Louisiana Board of Ethics.
“That’s something I really can’t discuss at this time,” Fobbs said when asked about the charges, “It’s a legal issue and all I can really say about it is everything was done the way it should be.”
Fobbs was asked about the timing of the charges, considering that he and his father were hired almost two years ago.
“As far as the timing (goes), that’s something I’m really not concerned about,” Fobbs said. “But everything is being handled the way is should be.”
Fobbs answered “no” to the question if the charges would present a distraction to his team now that it is in the middle of a championship run.
The Tigers, coming off of an open week, will resume play Saturday against Texas Southern in Shreveport at 2 p.m.
