Best Potential Head Coaches for the LSU Tigers, as the Tigers and Ed Orgeron decided to part ways earlier this year. This was a move nobody saw coming, after coming off a national championship just a couple of years ago. But who will replace Orgeron after this season? That’s a great question, as there are a lot of guys in prime positions to take the job. So in this article, I am going to give you four guys atop the list. I’ll also tell you why they would be a good fit at LSU. But it’s going to be hard to tell which direction LSU will go, so we will have to wait and see.
1. Jimbo Fisher – Best Potential Head Coaches
Yes, I know he has already denied reports of going to LSU on multiple occasions, as he has said that he is happy where he is at Texas A&M. But when you think about it, Jimbo would be the perfect hire at LSU. As he as ties to LSU and was a former assistant under Nick Sabon. Also, the athletic director who hired him at Texas A&M is now the athletic director at LSU, Scott Woodward. LSU isn’t afraid of opening up its checkbook, as we have seen in the past, and there is currently no buyout for Fisher at Texas A&M., But he is making a lot of money at Texas A&M as he is making ruffly 7.5 Million a year coaching at Texas A&M.
2. Dave Aranda – Best Potential Head Coaches
Dave Aranda was a defensive coordinator for LSU who helped them with the national title in 2019. He has since become the head coach at Baylor; in 2020, he won two out of nine games. But this season, he has turned the Bears around by an improving 6-1 record. So his time at LSU helps but so too does his ability to be a solid head coach. But the biggest thing is if LSU wants to go with a defensive guy, but if LSU hires a solid offensive coordinator, it will help Aranda’s chances.
3. Billy Napier – Best Potential Head Coaches
What Billy Napier has done at Louisiana Lafayette is incredible. He has a record of 33-12 in three and a half seasons at the school. That includes two double-digit win seasons in the last two years. His sustained success should make him a candidate for several jobs this offseason. Napier has been successful in the state of Louisiana already, which makes him appealing for the job. With so many more resources at his disposal at LSU, Napier could carry on that success. He may not be LSU’s first choice, but his track record in Louisiana wouldn’t make him a bad hire. So we will just have to wait and see.
4. Luke Fickell
This name will appear on almost all head coaching positions this offseason, after giving Cincinnati success these past couple of seasons. If LSU’s first head coaching choices don’t work out, Fickell may not be a bad hire. But he has shown the last couple of weeks some coaching mishaps that almost cost Cincinnati a couple of games this year. But, like I said, he would be a good third or fourth choice for LSU.
