Report: Ed Orgeron named full-time LSU head coach


The LSU Tigers have found their next head coach.

On Saturday morning, LSU announced a press conference at noon local time to announce its next head coach. According to Football Scoop, that will be none other than current interim coach Ed Orgeron.

LSU was reportedly deciding between Orgeron and Houston’s Tom Herman.

However, Herman informed LSU that the Texas Longhorns were still in the picture, so the program ultimately decided to move forward with Orgeron, who the players are firmly behind.

Per ESPN’s Brett McMurphy, the Tigers weren’t “going to be held hostage. In the end, they chose guy who wanted the job and not guy who wanted the money.”

Earlier this week, Orgeron met with LSU officials and reportedly laid out a long-term plan if he was to become head coach, which could involve bringing over offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin from Alabama to run the LSU offense.

As for what the news means for Tom Herman, well, it wouldn’t be a surprise if he is already measuring the drapes in Austin.
