LSU will have a new coach in 2022.
The Tigers will be parting ways with coach Ed Orgeron at the end of the season. Since the announcement, more things have came out on his eventual departure from the program. There was a reported incident involving the pregnant wife of a high ranking LSU official.
“It created messes for him, like the time Orgeron pulled up to a woman at a gas station wearing exercise attire. “Hey, you look like you work out,” he said, according to multiple sources. “We could work out together.” The woman informed Orgeron she was married and pregnant, to which he responded, “Why does that matter?”
That woman was the wife of a high-ranking LSU official. Word of this reached the LSU Board of Supervisors, the collection of prominent Louisiana attorneys and business owners appointed by the governor who make the most important decisions at LSU. And of course, it reached LSU athletic director Scott Woodward.”
LSU beat Florida in a wild 49-42 game on Saturday to move to 4-3 in 2021 as the team is decimated with injuries. The Tigers have lost to UCLA, Auburn, and Kentucky this season and were 5-5 in 2020.
Aside from the wife incident above, Orgeron is a defendant in a Title IX suit against the school. The suit alleges that Orgeron did not report a sexual assault allegation against LSU running back Derrius Guice in 2016. He has denied those allegations.
Guice has been accused of multiple cases of sexual harassment and sexual assault and his statistics have been stripped from LSU’s record books.
LSU is Orgeron’s third stop as a college football head coach. He has a record of 49-17.
