Orgeron would like Kiffin as OC

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

If Louisiana State University Tigers interim head coach Ed Orgeron keeps his job next season, he has a target for his offensive coordinator. That is reportedly Alabama Crimson Tide coordinator Lane Kiffin.

It has been believed that Kiffin would leave the team for a college head coaching job or a National Football League offensive coordinator job. Kiffin hasn’t interviewed with any college jobs yet this season, but did last season.

Steve Sarkisian would replace Kiffin, as the new offensive coordinator. Head coach Nick Saban also did this a few years back when Kiffin was on the staff then replaced Doug Nussmeier when he left to be Michigan Wolverines offensive coordinator.

Nussmeier is now the Florida Gators offensive coordinator, where he’s been the past two seasons.

Orgeron and Kiffin previously worked together two times. They were in Tennessee together in 2009, before they both left for the USC Trojans in 2010. Both times, Kiffin was the head coach at the schools.

When the two were at Tennessee, they finished with a 7-6 record. Orgeron served as the Associate Head Coach/Defensive Line Coach/Recruiting Coordinator.

In 2010, the Trojans finished with an 8-5 record. After beginning the season with a 4-0 record, they went 4-5 to end the season.

Orgeron served as the Defensive Coordinator for this team.
