It’s gearing up to be a wild season on the college football coaching carousel with the USC and LSU jobs now both open before Halloween.

Paul Finebaum recently joined the “Keyshawn, JWill & Max Show” to discuss the vacancy in Baton Rouge. Finebaum was asked whether he thinks LSU or USC is the better coaching job. The SEC Network host believes the Bayou offers a better opportunity.

“Keyshawn, I’m glad you asked me that question and it’s a legitimate question and my answer is very simply, LSU,” Finebaum said. “Why? Because I think LSU is a standalone state. There is no competition. You can not live entirely off Louisiana products, but you can live well off of products just from that one state. Ed Orgeron has lost a lot of those players.

“Just look at the Alabama roster. There’s plenty of Louisiana kids playing. I know the greatness of USC and I think it can be great again, but the last three LSU Football coaches have won national championships. When you have a program, when Les Miles and Ed Orgeron can win national championships at your program, anybody can because I don’t think either one of them are great football coaches.

“It’s a great atmosphere. The money pours in and the recruiting is easier in Louisiana than it is in Southern California.”

LSU and USC are expected to be looking at some of the same candidates. College football fans everywhere will be watching how these hirings play out.
