Gayle Benson Rumors
“It is a pleasure to welcome Stan and his family to New Orleans,” said Pelicans Governor Gayle Benson. “Stan’s basketball acumen and record of accomplishment are a tremendous fit for this team right now. We look forward to Stan bringing a level of sustained success for our Pelicans on the court. I also want to commend David Griffin, Trajan Langdon, Swin Cash and the entire front office for the time and effort put into this comprehensive head coaching search.”
New Orleans Saints and Pelicans owner Gayle Benson was seated in her car in Uptown last weekend when a man barged in and apparently tried to steal the vehicle, police and team officials confirmed Friday. The man abandoned his plan when Benson screamed at him to get out, and investigators are now searching for a suspect, the Saints and New Orleans police said.
“While she was very shaken at the time, she was unharmed and is doing fine,” longtime Saints and Pelicans spokesman Greg Bensel said in a statement Friday. “She wanted to send her sincere gratitude to the men and women of the New Orleans Police Department that responded so quickly and professionally.”
