View the original article to see embedded media.Rumors continue to persist across the college football sphere about who will take over LSU's head coaching job after it was announced Ed Orgeron will not return for 2022, and Oklahoma's Lincoln Riley's name continues to surface. The Athletic's Bruce Feldman tweeted that there's been "lots of chatter" about the head coach leaving the Sooners, but he's heard "that is not gonna happen." This aligns with Riley's comments from earlier this week.

Lincoln Riley will not be the next head coach at LSU.

The source of that information is Lincoln Riley.

Riley, in his fifth season as the head coach of Oklahoma, told reporters Saturday night after OU dropped a heartbreaker to Oklahoma State that he is staying in Norman.

Riley had been a rumored target of LSU athletic director Scott Woodward for the vacancy in Baton Rouge. The LSU job has been officially open since Oct. 17, when the school said Ed Orgeron would not return in 2022.

LSU football message boards convinced Lincoln Riley is leaving Oklahoma for Tigers

  LSU football message boards convinced Lincoln Riley is leaving Oklahoma for Tigers LSU football is looking for a new head coach and a wild message board 'report' has Lincoln Riley leaving Oklahoma to take over from Ed Orgeron. With one game left in the regular season against rival Texas A&M, LSU football is preparing to close the book on Ed Orgeron as their he ad coach and, as such, the coaching carousel is whirling around in Baton Rouge. There are numerous big names that have been connected to the Tigers job, not limited to Jimbo Fisher at A&M, James Franklin at Penn State, and several others. However, an LSU message board "report" might take the cake in terms of the program replacing Orgeron.

Since then, Woodward’s search has been one of the biggest ongoing mysteries in the sport. Yahoo Sports’ Pete Thamel has reported that Texas A&M coach Jimbo Fisher is Woodward’s top target. Woodward brought Fisher to A&M when Woodward was A&M’s AD, but Fisher has continually said he is not leaving his perch in College Station.

If Fisher sticks to his word, where will Woodward turn? Thamel listed Louisiana’s Billy Napier, Iowa State’s Matt Campbell and Kentucky’s Mark Stoops as potential options. There’s also the chance Woodward could pull a big name out of left field. He is known to play his searches close to the vest and go after marquee names.

“Where LSU goes if it’s not Fisher is the biggest mystery hovering over the carousel,” Thamel wrote.

As for Riley, he has a 55-10 record in five seasons at Oklahoma. Oklahoma won the Big 12 in his first four seasons and also has three College Football Playoff appearances under his belt. The 10-2 Sooners will fall short of those goals this season.

With Saturday night’s loss in Stillwater, Oklahoma will not play in next weekend’s Big 12 title game. Instead, it will be a showdown between Oklahoma State and Baylor. And with two losses, OU is almost certainly eliminated from the CFP picture.
