Presiding over the nation’s No. 2 ranked football program, LSU Tigers athletic director Scott Woodward appeared on “The Paul Finebaum Show” on Friday.

Touching on a number of topics, Woodward discussed what has made his head coach, Ed Orgeron, so successful on the recruiting trail.

“It’s genuineness,” Woodward began.

“It’s telling Mom & Dad we are going to take care of your young man. We are going to do what is best for him. Get him an education. Prepare him for the NFL if that’s his dream, and prepare him for life after.

“Coach O (Orgeron) is so good at that. And frankly he’s one of the few coaches that loves doing it. I mean he just thrives on it.”

TigerDroppings shared Woodward’s comments on Twitter:

Previously serving as the athletic director for the Washington Huskies (2007-16) and Texas A&M Aggies (2016-19), Woodward replaced Joe Alleva in April.

In his third season as the program’s full-time head coach, Orgeron originally took over the job on an interim basis following the removal of Les Miles in September 2016.

His second stint as an SEC head coach, Orgeron was head man at Ole Miss from 2005-07. Even though Woodward did not hire Orgeron, often a big deal in collegiate sports, it is clear the two are on the same page for the time being.

A top-10 battle, LSU (7-0) will host No. 9 Auburn (6-1) on Saturday at 3:30PM ET as part of the SEC on CBS.
