Things continue to spiral out of control for LSU and head coach Ed Orgeron. Not only have the two parties reached an agreement to part ways after the season, but some reports now claim that Coach O “lost track of who he was and what made him good” during his time in Baton Rouge.
Apparently, he lost track of the fact he had been married up until very recently and that hitting on the pregnant wife of a school official is usually bad form.
The Athletic’s Brody Miller reported that Orgeron has been accused of hitting on the pregnant wife of an LSU official at a gas station, adding to the distractions that the newly single Orgeron has brought to the program.
Orgeron filed for divorce from his wife in April 2020 after 23 years, but Larry Brown Sports reports the two had been living apart for a few months before the divorce filing.
It didn’t take long for Orgeron’s eyes to wander once again.
“That woman was the wife of a high-ranking LSU official. Word of this reached the LSU Board of Supervisors, the collection of prominent Louisiana attorneys and business owners appointed by the governor who make the most important decisions at LSU. And of course, it reached LSU athletic director Scott Woodward,” Miller reports.
In November 2020, photos showing the then 59-year-old National Champion head coach of LSU, enjoying the company of a new mystery lady circulated the Internet.
On Sunday, LSU released a detailed buyout payment plan for Orgeron, whose buyout calls for him to receive just under $17 million as of a Dec. 1 termination because he was fired without cause, OutKick previously reported.
OutKick’s Glenn Guilbeau reports sources close to LSU still maintain that efforts will be made to decrease that buyout, but AD Scott Woodward and Orgeron seemed to be at the end of a harmonious breakup Sunday.
