With the live recruiting period beginning in less than a week, schools are making travel plans and finalizing their strategy for criss-crossing all over the country to see dozens of players in a short amount of time.

Unless it's Grambling.

Head coach Joseph Price was suddenly fired this week, as interim school president Cynthia Warrick decided to make massive changes in her first day on the job. Warrick also let go of the school's athletic director.

“It's a hurtful feeling and very shocking that all of a sudden it happened,” guard Remond Brown told The News-Star. “I'm honestly just in shock that it occurred.”

Price went 0-28 in his first season at Grambling, and followed it up with a 5-24 campaign this past season. The school was ineligible for the postseason last season due to APR, but Price turned things around and had the ban lifted for the upcoming season.
