Dear Tiger Fans. LSU's Joe Alleva wants you to know how seriously he's taking the job of hiring a new football coach.

Alleva sent out a letter Friday morning reiterating the qualities he's looking for in a coach. That wish list hasn't changed since he offered a similar list of traits in an interview with The Advocate's Scott Rabalais.

Alleva's letter concludes by saying the athletic department welcomes comments from fans to the email address athletics@lsu.edu. And, YOU KNOW, Tiger fans are not shy about offering an opinion.
