LSU head Coach Ed Orgeron is getting a raise!

According to Bruce Feldman, Orgeron is getting an extension and the details can be found below in Feldman’s Tweet.

“I’m very appreciative of Scott Woodward, the LSU Board of Supervisors and the state of Louisiana,” Orgeron said. “I’m happy to represent LSU and this great state. My family and I are very grateful, and I look forward to working as hard as possible to continue to win championships at LSU.”

LSU is taking a 15 game winning streak into next season.

“Coach O has set a new standard at LSU,” said LSU Athletic Director Scott Woodward. “He has proven that he is not only a championship coach, but also a leader of a program committed to doing things the right way. He has represented our institution and our state with great pride, on and off the field of play. He is well-deserving of this new contract, which should make clear our commitment to Coach O and the direction of our football program.”

LSU has come a long way since Orgeron first took the full-time job in 2017.
