Report: Ed Orgeron to receive contract extension

LSU football coach Ed Orgeron will have his contract extended prior to the 2019-20 season, according to a report from NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune citing a senior LSU official.

According to the report, details of the extension have not yet been finalized and thus have not been presented to the LSU Board of Supervisors.

Orgeron’s current contract runs through 2021 and guarantees him $3.5 million annually in addition to a potential of $1.5 million in incentive bonuses.

The potential extension comes after a season in which Orgeron led the Tigers to a 10-3 season — LSU’s first 10-win season since 2011 — capped off with a convincing 40-32 victory against UCF in the Fiesta Bowl.

It was Orgeron’s second complete season since officially taking the team over in 2017. He also served much of the 2016 season as the program’s interim head coach after previous head coach Les Miles was fired four games into the season.
