Ed Orgeron won’t coach in LSU Tigers flop after qualifying with disappointment to No. 15 Texas A&M

Ed Orgeron coached his last game for LSU.

After the Tigers let down number 15 Texas A&M 27-24 and win the sixth game of the season on Saturday, Orgeron announced that he will not be coaching LSU’s upcoming bowling game. Attack Line Coach Brad Davis will act as the interim coach for the game.

In October, LSU and Orgeron announced that they had reached an agreement to separate and that he would not return as head coach of the Tigers next season. He also said at the time that he would coach the game down if the team hit six wins.

This is not the first time that Orgeron has been in such a position and refused to coach a game of bowls. As interim coach for USC in 2013, Orgeron decided to step down and not coach during the Trojans’ botched game after discovering he wouldn’t have a permanent head coach position.

Orgeron’s unraveling in Baton Rouge was swift. Just two seasons ago, he led LSU’s undefeated championship season in 2019. Since then, he’s gone 11-11 in his final two seasons at LSU. He has also been accused of improperly handling allegations of sexual misconduct by a player twice in the last year.

As was reported at the time the split was announced, Orgeron will receive its full $17 million acquisition. Orgeron also said in October that he had no plans to coach in 2022.

“I want to take some time off. I’m 60 years old, I’ve been coaching for 37 years,” he said at a press conference. “I think I’ll have enough money to buy myself a hamburger and maybe a two-meat hamburger once in a while. I’d like to take some time off to figure out where I’m going. Today, I think that’s it. I won’t coach, but that could be different a month from now. But right now I want to take some time off and spend it with my kids.”

LSU, meanwhile, has been connected with various coaches, including Jimbo Fisher, who beat Orgeron on Saturday, and who vehemently denied that he would leave A&M for any work. any in this season.

“Whoever the new coach is, I wish him the best of luck in the world,” Orgeron said on Saturday. “I will always be an LSU fan.”
