LSU head coaching search: CFB insider reveals Tigers brass like Big Ten head coach
LSU has reportedly reached a separation agreement with head coach Ed Orgeron, which will keep him in Baton Rouge through the end of the 2021 season.
The Tigers will need to find a new head coach for the 2022 season, though, and it seems they could have their sights set on the Big Ten.
Even before Sunday’s news broke, CFB insider Bruce Feldman said during Saturday’s “Big Noon Kickoff” on FOX that influential folks in the LSU program love Michigan State head coach Mel Tucker:

“I am told there are some very influential people inside LSU who are really really high on Mel Tucker,” Feldman said. “Remember, Mel Tucker was an assistant at LSU on Nick Saban’s staff. He knows the SEC very well, also. But, would he make another move? Remember, he was at Colorado, now Michigan State. Would he make another move in a short period of time? This I do know — people inside LSU who matter, they are really high on Mel Tucker.”
Tucker has the Spartans at 7-0 so far this season. He spent the 2000 season as LSU’s DB coach.
