Who will be the next head coach of the LSU Tigers football program?
According to multiple reports on Sunday morning, Coach O will not return in Baton Rouge in 2022. Sports Illustrated’s Ross Dellenger and others have confirmed that the Tigers are working on an agreement with Ed Orgeron.
Coach O, who won a national championship at LSU in 2019, will not return next season. He is reportedly expected to coach out the year.
Negotiations began last week before UF win.
It’s unprecedented in the sport – coach & school divorcing 21 months after winning it all.

LSU is 9-8 since its national championship season. According to Dellenger, relationships in Baton Rouge have gotten to the point where a change was needed.
“A strained relationship between coach & administration – rooted in team management & public/private behavior – has warped into an untenable situation, distrust & outbursts,” he reports.
So, where will LSU turn next?
One coach is getting most of the hype right now: Mel Tucker. Michigan State’s head coach has the Spartans off to an undefeated start. People in Baton Rouge are reportedly very high on the Michigan State head coach.

There will likely be several intriguing candidates, including Cincinnati’s Luke Fickell, though this might be Tucker’s job to lose.
