LSU football coach Ed Orgeron has been formally requested to testify at an April 8 hearing before a Louisiana state Senate committee after a Mercedes-Benz Superdome employee testified then-running back Derrius Guice sexually harassed her and the coach tried to intervene.
Louisiana State Sen. Regina Barrow, D-Baton Rouge, confirmed to various news outlets, that Oregron has been invited to speak to the Senate Select Committee on Women and Children. He has until Tuesday to respond.
The committee has also invited the following people to speak as well: LSU athletic administrators Scott Woodward, Verge Ausberry and Miriam Segar along members of the LSU Board of Supervisors, LSU’s Title IX Coordinator and a member of the Taylor Porter Law Firm.
Last Friday, Gloria Scott, 74, told the committee that she spoke directly to Orgeron about sexual harassment she said she endured as a Superdome security guard in December 2017 from Guice. She said Orgeron did nothing to reprimand the running back.
Orgeron said he doesn’t recall talking with Scott, who claims Orgeron is lying.
