Former NFL player Greg LaFleur loses athletic director job after arrest

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.

  1. Just something else that should be legalized, taxed, and regulated along with marijuana and gambling.

  2. It’s disgusting that prostitution is illegal and that someone would lose their job over it. They provide a service, pleasure and entertainment, in exchange for money. There’s nothing wrong with that. This is just another example of Christian Fascism. I’m sick of this country being controlled by people who think an invisible magic sky wizard hates the human body.

  3. Well ironhawk why don’t you find a non-Christian Fascist country, where prostitution is legal and they’ve got a pro football league, and go there.

    I live in Baton Rouge and there have been rumblings about LaFleur’s poor job performance at Southern for quite some time. The hooker bust was merely the last straw.

    Your agreement or disagreement with the laws against prostitution are irrelevant to this particular story. If your athletic director is caught soliciting a prostitute, there is no way he has any credibility to run your athletic program at university. Not only is it a huge embarrassment to the university but there is no way he could set rules and policies for students to follow if he, himself, does not even follow the law.

    Like prostitutes, drug dealers provide a service (access to drugs) that provide pleasure and entertainment to the drug user. Also like a prostitute, a drug dealer provides a service that is illegal. We could argue all day whether drugs and prostitution should be legal (which I think both should be so they can be regulated and taxed to pay down the national debt) but it wouldn’t matter. Whatever the law is at this moment is what we have to follow – especially if we have a high profile position where we would need to show a lot of credibility.

  5. Totally out of the blue here, but maybe he’d have been a better AD if he wasn’t trolling to get laid all the time.

  6. Meanwhile, dozens if not hundreds of Houston area folks who’s houses were burglarized get no investigative or arrest assistance because the department is too overworked doing other important things like this. Don’t mess with Texass! Amerikkka really is a stupid country. The big fall is coming.
