Political consultant and man-about-town James Carville, who has taught a series of popular classes at Tulane University for seven years, will be hanging his academic shingle at LSU's Manship School of Mass Communication starting in January, the university announced today in a press release.

Carville is an LSU graduate and was was the Manship School's commencement speaker in 2015. Last year, he and his wife, political strategist and writer Mary Matalin, entertained a crowd at Loyola University with their thoughts on the 2016 presidential race.

The always-quotable Carville provided a great quote in the announcement. "The mother ship," he said, "has called my pirogue home.”
