Orgeron took over as the interim head coach when LSU fired Les Miles in late September, and the Tigers finished 5-2 under Orgeron’s leadership, with the two losses coming to Alabama and Florida.

LSU has looked like a drastically different team under Orgeron’s leadership, especially offensively. In fact, the Tigers’ top three rushing games in school history have come over the last six weeks, thanks to running backs Leonard Fournette and Derrius Guice.

Orgeron brings a lot of energy to a program that certainly needs it, and first on the to-do list will be hiring a top-notch offensive coordinator who can score points and develop quarterbacks. Reports have indicated that Orgeron plans to target Alabama OC Lane Kiffin, as the two have worked together over the course of their careers.

Orgeron was hired as LSU’s defensive line coach for the 2015 season, and he continued in that role until Sept. 26, when the Tigers fired Les Miles. Orgeron was promoted to interim head coach immediately thereafter.

With previous stops at Ole Miss and Tennessee, Orgeron no doubt knows the SEC well.

And he finally has his dream job at LSU.
