LSU affirms six-year, $42 million agreement expansion for Ed Orgeron

LSU has verified that Ed Orgeron will be compensated for the football program’s notable 2019 campaign.

Prior Friday, it was reported that LSU and Ed Orgeron had agreed on another arrangement for the head coach. A brief timeframe prior, the school affirmed that an all-encompassing deal with Orgeron is in reality set up.

Per the school, the new six-year agreement incorporates a base yearly compensation of $6 million. Furthermore, Orgeron will get a $5 million split-dollar life insurance policy payable over the initial two years of the agreement. Altogether, the agreement is worth more than $42 million, preceding bonuses.

This past season, his third entire year at the school, Orgeron earned $4 million in total compensation. That was tied for 28th broadly — Chad Morris, terminated by Arkansas, was one of them with whom Orgeron was tied — and tied for eighth in the SEC as indicated by the USA Today coaching salary database.

“Coach O has set a new standard at LSU,” said LSU athletic director Scott Woodward said in a statement. “He has proven that he is not only a championship coach but also a leader of a program committed to doing things the right way. He has represented our institution and our state with great pride, on and off the field of play. He is well-deserving of this new contract, which should make clear our commitment to Coach O and the direction of our football program.”

The new deal between LSU and Ed Orgeron is pending the approval of the school’s board of supervisors.

In three or more seasons with the Bayou Bengals — he served as an interval head coach after Les Miles was terminated in September of 2016 — Orgeron has gone 40-9 overall and 23-7 in SEC play. During the run to an undefeated 2019 campaign, LSU beat seven teams ranked in the Top 10 at the time the game was played. That is the first time throughout the entire existence of college football that is occurred.

En route to that ideal 15-0 season, Orgeron gathered a handful of honors, including being named the SEC (HERE), Home Depot (HERE), Associated Press, Eddie Robinson (HERE) and Walter Camp Coach of the Year (HERE).

“I’m very appreciative of Scott Woodward, the LSU Board of Supervisors and the state of Louisiana,” Orgeron said. “I’m happy to represent LSU and this great state. My family and I are very grateful, and I look forward to working as hard as possible to continue to win championships at LSU.”
