Chane Behanan Gives An Update On His Plans

Jamie Rhodes-USA TODAY Sports

Chane Behanan's next move will be to Houston. Where he's headed after that, he isn't sure.

Behanan told Jeff Goodman of Thursday that he's headed to Texas to work with former NBA player and coach John Lucas, but the move is more about his off-the-court life than his basketball career.

"I'm hoping to go down there, take care of myself and then hopefully get another opportunity -- wherever it may be," Behanan said Thursday morning. "I haven't decided what I'm going to do yet. First I'm going to go get help."

Lucas runs a drug and alcohol treatment program for athletes and coaches. He's worked with NFL player Tyrann Mathieu, former Kentucky and Texas Tech coach Billy Gillispie, Colorado State coach Larry Eustachy, ex-Rutgers coach Mike Rice and Texas Southern player Aaric Murray with a variety of issues. Behanan did not reveal what problem he needs to address.

Chane also reiterated how sorry he is for letting everyone at U of L down.

"I'm sorry that I let me teammates down, my family down and the coaching staff down," Behanan said. "I know the fans believed in me and stuck by me, and I apologize to them as well."

"Now I'm going to work on myself and being a better person," he added. "I'm still young and still learning. I'm hoping I can learn and get where I want to go in life."

Goodman added that Behanan has made no decision as far as whether he wants to transfer to another school or begin his professional career. Though he was unaware of the number of schools that have expressed interest in having him transfer in, sources told that the number is in double-digits.

It sounds like Behanan is 1-for-1 when it comes to making decisions in his post-Louisville life.

Best of luck in Houston, Chane. We're all rooting for you.
