Why did LSU fire Ed Orgeron? Tigers make surprising coaching change two years after championship

  Why did LSU fire Ed Orgeron? Tigers make surprising coaching change two years after championship Here's what we know about the situation between LSU and Ed Orgeron and what led to their separation agreement.Per Dellenger, Orgeron will continue coaching the team through the 2021 season after starting the year 4-3. The move makes sense, allowing the team to have some semblance of stability as the school conducts what will likely be a high-profile coaching search.

It was quite the weekend for both Lane Kiffin and Ed Orgeron.

Kiffin’s Ole Miss Rebels held on to defeat the Tennessee Volunteers in Knoxville but not before fans pelted the field with garbage towards the end of the game. Kiffin himself got his with a golf ball and other items.

Meanwhile, Orgeron’s LSU Tigers pulled off a big upset win over the Florida Gators, but it was announced soon after that the school and head coach had come to an agreement for Coach O to finish out the season and then leave the program. The move completes a stunning fall from grace for a coach who won a national championship less than two years ago.

Kiffin in particular seemed to be targeted with items, with some Vols fans still remembering his acrimonious departure more than a decade ago.

The two coaches on very different paths in their careers will come together this upcoming Saturday when No. 12 Ole Miss hosts LSU. During his Monday presser, Kiffin was asked about the status of star quarterback Matt Corral and said that he was “not in good shape” and “hopefully he plays.”

As many have pointed out, Corral himself discussed the ankle injury after the game on Saturday and he certainly seemed fine, saying “it’s all good” and “I was good after.”

Opinion: Now, they're coming for you, Ed Orgeron, whose time at LSU is waning

  Opinion: Now, they're coming for you, Ed Orgeron, whose time at LSU is waning Ed Orgeron is almost certainly going to join former Auburn coach Gene Chizik in getting fired just two years after winning the national title."We comin'," Orgeron shouted in his gravely Cajun accent when asked if that game had laid the groundwork for future glory. "We comin’ and we ain’t backin’ down.

The difference in sentiment certainly has a lot of people thinking Kiffin is trying to play things fast and loose in order to throw LSU off their game plan. And one of those people is Coach O, who isn’t buying what Lane is selling.

“Knowing Coach Kiffin, he’s throwing me a smokescreen,” said Orgeron during his Monday press conference. To be fair, we can totally understand the assumption that Kiffin is doing a little gamesmanship. It’s kinda his thing.

It’s never a dull moment in the SEC, no matter which program you happen to be the coach of (for now). We’ll see whether or not Corral plays on Saturday when LSU and Ole Miss kick off at 12:30 p.m.
