Former Ole Miss head football coach & USC assistant Ed Orgeron has been hired by LSU, per NBC Sports.
The Larosen native was a defensive line coach for the New Orleans Saints in 2008 and for Lane Kiffin at Tennessee in 2009 and USC from 2010-13. When Kiffin was fired in the middle of the 2013 season, Orgeron finished it as USC's interim head coach and led the Trojans to a 6-2 record. He was not retained when interviewing for the full time head coaching job after the 2013 season.
Orgeron has coached the defensive line through his career, and ESPN reports Orgeron will be LSU's defensive line coach.
