The status of Ed Orgeron as LSU head football coach is no longer a mystery.
The coach who led the Tigers to a national championship in 2019 is out after the conclusion of 2021 season.
Negotiations began last week before UF win.
It’s unprecedented in the sport – coach & school divorcing 21 months after winning it all.

The agreement comes a day after the Tigers outlasted Florida, 49-42, in a wild SEC game.
Orgeron replaced Les Miles in Baton Rouge in 2016, going 6-2, and earning the job.
He went 19-7 in his first 2 seasons before going 15-0 in 2019.
The Tigers lost Heisman winner Joe Burrow and a ton of talent to the NFL after the championship.
They have gone 9-8 since, including 4-3 this season.
Orgeron has history at USC, having coached the Trojans to a 6-2 record in 2013 in an interim capacity.
Of course, the USC job will be open at the end of this season, too.
