After letting go of Bo Pelini, spending only one season in his second stint as LSU’s defensive coordinator, Ed Orgeron and the Tigers are finalizing a contract with its next defensive coordinator (according to a report from NFL Network’s Jane Slater).

Last week, LSU filled its offensive coordinator vacancy by hiring Jake Peetz from the Carolina Panthers.

Orgeron coached Nielsen at USC and the two coached alongside each other at Ole Miss.
