“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.
