BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – Louisiana State University and Head Coach Ed Orgeron agreed to part ways after more than four seasons as the leader of the LSU Football program that includes a National Championship win in 2019, as first reported by Sports Illustrated.

#LSU and Ed Orgeron have reached a separation agreement: He will not return in 2022 but expected to complete this season, sources tell @SINow.

Negotiations began last week before UF win.

It’s unprecedented in the sport – coach & school divorcing 21 months after winning it all.
