On Thanksgiving night, news broke that the Louisiana State University Tigers could have a deal with Houston Cougars head coach Tom Herman in place by Saturday. It was an injustice to interim head coach Ed Orgeron.
See, Orgeron was coaching the Tigers at the time the news broke. He went on to guide LSU to a 54-39 beating of the Texas A&M Aggies on Thursday night.
Orgeron has the support of his players in an ESPN.com story. He only lost one game as the interim coach which was against the Alabama Crimson Tide earlier this month when they lost 10-0.
“I think he did a tremendous job,” LSU safety Jamal Adams said. “I love Coach O. I pray that he’s the head coach for LSU.”
He took over the job when Joe Alleva, athletic director, fired then-head coach Les Miles after the team went 2-2.
Tigers linebacker Duke Riley posted a video on Twitter insisting that he wants Orgeron as the coach.
“He’s done a great job,” LSU running back Derrius Guice said. “He’s a family guy. He keeps us close. He reminds us that it’s you fighting for your brothers.
”We’re all one heartbeat. I want Coach O to stay. We need somebody like Coach O to lead us out there. Coach O has my vote all the way.”
