Hashing through LSU’s coaching announcements, subsequent recruiting news

Ed Orgeron will be LSU’s football coaching moving forward, Athletic Director Joe Alleva announced Saturday after a week-long whirlwind of rumors linked Jimbo Fisher and Tom Herman to the position.

And within just four days, the subsequent news and developments have given fans little opportunity to catch their breath.

Most notably and anticipated, defensive coordinator Dave Aranda will remain on board — with a pay raise and extension at that — while the Tigers have parted ways with special teams coordinator Bradley Dale Peveto.

A pair of prospects with longstanding relationships with Orgeron took steps away from LSU.

Southern Lab linebacker Chris Allen committed to Alabama, and St. Stanislaus quarterback Myles Brennan reopened his recruitment from a seemingly rock-solid pledge to the Tigers.

Orgeron and company also extended an offer to Alabama quarterback commit Tua Tagovailoa — a particularly interesting move within the context of the program’s pursuit of not only Brennan and commit Lowell Narcisse, but also of Crimson Tide offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin.

Jerit Roser and Mark Clements sift through all the moves, implications and context in the podcast below.
