Report: LSU extending contract of coach Ed Orgeron
No one expected the LSU Tigers to reach 10 wins this season, but that’s exactly what they did, going 10-3 and beating UCF in the Fiesta Bowl.
With some top talent returning to the field this fall, much will be expected from coach Ed Orgeron and the Tigers, and the LSU administration clearly believes in him.
On Wednesday afternoon, it was reported that the school was finalizing a contract extension for Coach O, but details weren’t known at the time:

This extension will take effect after his current deal expires following the 2021 season. He currently makes $3.5 million per season.
Will the Tigers continue to roll under Coach O? We’ll find out starting this fall, but for now, there’s no reason to doubt what Orgeron is doing in Baton Rouge.
