If LSU football needs a new coach at the end of the year, who could the university look at as realistic options to replace Ed Orgeron?

LSU’s football program has been stagnant since winning a national title to cap off the 2019 season. The Tigers had one of the most prolific offenses in college football history accompanied by a stout defense and led by a brilliant coaching staff. But the vast majority of the members of that team have moved on and LSU head coach Ed Orgeron has failed to sustain success.

On top of that, LSU is under heavy scrutiny due to serious allegations, including some that surround the football program. Orgeron was previously named a defendant in a Title IX lawsuit, according to a report by Sports Illustrated.

It would not be shocking to see the Tigers distance themselves from Orgeron and fire him in the coming months. In fact, many are expecting it and many LSU fans are impatiently waiting for that to happen.

So, when the Tigers do move on from their current head coach, where should they look? LSU fans have high expectations for their team and Orgeron isn’t meeting that standard. Who could help turn things around in Baton Rouge?

While some LSU fans likely have unrealistic expectations for their next head coach because of how prestigious that job is, some folks will likely turn them down.

As such, here are three high-profile names the Tigers should try to court to be their head coach.
