Greg LaFleur, an NFL tight end from 1981 to 1986, allegedly decided to visit a prostitute during his recent trip to Houston for the Final Four. As a result, he’s lost his job as the athletic director at Southern University.
Southern chancellor Kofi Lomotey said LaFleur simply couldn’t continue to run the athletic department after he was charged with solicitation of a prostitute.
“Given the circumstances, I think it would be difficult for the university to move forward with Mr. LaFleur as the head of the athletic program,” Lomotey said. “I appreciate his effort and the hard work he put in during some difficult situations. I speak for the rest of my staff in wishing him well.”
After playing college football at LSU, LaFleur was a third-round draft pick of the Eagles in 1981. He never played for Philadelphia, but he played every game for five seasons with the Cardinals before finishing his career with the Colts.
