BeBe’s Kids? LSU interim coach Ed Orgeron’s live audition begins vs. Mizzou | Podcast
A head football coach other than Les Miles will lead LSU into action Saturday for the first time in more than a decade.
The 12th-year head of the program — and, in many ways, face of the university — was fired earlier this week on the heels of a disappointing and downright odd and wild 18-13 loss at unranked Auburn.
Defensive line coach and fan- and player-favorite Ed Orgeron takes the reins on an interim basis as yet another set of Tigers, Missouri’s, arrive to Baton Rouge for homecoming.
But a slew of other names that includes Houston’s Tom Herman, Florida State’s Jimbo Fisher, former Baylor coach Art Briles, Alabama offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin and even Alabama coach Nick Saban and Ohio State coach Urban Meyer has already been circulated at volume through the past five days.
Jerit Roser and Mark Clements discuss in the podcast below several dynamics of the controversial divorce — from the move itself, Miles’ tenure overall, Orgeron’s current position and potential, the quality of the other candidates and what Saturday could look like from a football standpoint.
