LSU confirms new deal for DC Dave Aranda
After hiring Ed Orgeron as LSU’s full-time head coach, the school turned its attention towards retaining one of the top defensive minds in college football.
In his first season with the Tigers, after coming over from Wisconsin, Aranda’s unit finished the season ranked No. 13 in total defense. Reports surfaced a couple of days ago that Aranda had agreed to a new deal that would pay him nearly $2 million per season.
On Wednesday, the school confirmed the news in a press release.

The Tigers have locked down their defensive coordinator, and Orgeron’s staff is starting to round into shape.
