One day after it was announced that LSU head football coach Ed Orgeron would depart the program at the end of the season, there is a disturbing new report that has come to light. Orgeron’s character has come into question.
On Sunday, there was a report by The Athletic that said that Orgeron was hitting on a pregnant wife of an LSU official at a gas station. WBRZ’s Matt Terry is now reporting that the once proud Louisiana God would allegedly have “multiple girlfriends” at practices.
His alleged girlfriends would also impact the team’s drills.
“With regards to Orgeron’s personal life bleeding into his coaching life, sources also tell @WBRZ that there were multiple practices where “girlfriends” would be in attendance at prax and would “interfere,” Terry said on Twitter. “To the degree of children of the women taking part in drills with team.”– WBRZ’s Matt Terry
Orgeron has separated from his wife Kelly on February 24, 2020. The couple was together for 23 years before their separation.
A divorce petition was filed on February 26, 2020.
The 60-year-old, who is making $8.7 million this season, is 4-3 leading the team this season. The big win over the 20th-ranked Florida Gators on Saturday was not enough to save his job.
The school had began separation talks before the win. Then, on Sunday, the school announced Orgeron’s departure.
Since the 2016 season when he took over on an interim basis from Les Miles, Orgeron has gone 49-17 at the school.
