Report: Ed Orgeron adds College Football Hall of Fame coach to LSU staff
Ed Orgeron has added to his LSU coaching staff, per The Athletic’s Bruce Feldman.
Orgeron has hired College Football Hall of Fame (inducted 2009) coach John Robinson as a special consultant to the head coach. Robinson and Orgeron have a strong relationship, and Robinson will work directly with Coach O in this role.
Orgeron’s and Robinson’s relationship stems from their association with USC. Robinson coached at USC in three different stints, even becoming the head coach from 1993-97. Robinson has coached at three different colleges, including head coaching stints at USC and UNLV (1999-2004), as well as the Oakland Raiders (assistant 1975) and Los Angeles Rams (head coach 1983-91).
LSU’s head coach, of course, was an assistant at USC (1998-2004 and 2010-13) before becoming the interim head coach.
#LSU is hiring Hall of Famer John Robinson as a special consultant to HC Ed Orgeron. They’ve been close for years from their association thru #USC. Robinson’s wife is from New Orleans & is an LSU grad, he told me: “I’ve missed being around a team. I’m really excited about this.”
