Fox Sports College Football analyst Joel Klatt was on the Colin Cowherd’s show “The Herd” on Wednesday and said he thinks LSU will end up hiring Iowa State coach Matt Campbell to be Ed Orgeron's replacement. Per SDS:

For LSU, Klatt hesitated and eventually went with Iowa State coach Matt Campbell, who has taken ISU to new heights after he came from Toledo.

Campbell is a three-time Big 12 Coach of the Year (2017, 2018, 2020) and has led the Cyclones to four-straight bowl games, a school record, yearly appearances in the national rankings and the most wins in school history (32) over the last 4 seasons. In 2020, Campbell led the Cyclones to a first-place finish in the final Big 12 regular-season standings, a spot in the Big 12 Championship game and a New Year’s Six bowl game, all program firsts.

It's looking more and more like this guy is right on the money. As of Sunday November 28, Napier heading to gators :( really disappointed in that one and Lincoln Riley is heading to usc of all places. Lincoln Riley is scared out of his mind to compete with sec schools. He had enough beat downs over the years. I would have taken the lsu offer of 11 million a year and the chance to win multiple nattys and all the awards vs the pac12 who got zero chance at wining anything but a conference championship is about it

Or maybe USC offered more. I mean that is why 90%+ people choose their employer.

Riley likely was never offered the job.

Current biggest scam in sports is mentioning a link to LSU insures a new contract extension and big raise.

The sole purpose of that talk show, like most, is entertainment. Little that is said on there amounts to anything.

Good coach, just unproven but so was Saban at the time of his hire. Campbell has followed a similar path as Saban.

Solid "taking a chance on potential" choice. Patience will be needed though.

The coaching search will turn out harder hire a good coach than previously thought. I wish you did fire two coaches who won national titles so why would a Coach want to come here Especially with the landscape of college football changing

Maybe not create/continue ncaa and worse violations for sexual assault. That's a good start...

If it is somebody of Campbell’s caliber, I would think he would be paid half of what Riley might receive...

Would rather him than Lincoln.

Why is that? Just curious. I know nothing about the guy but his defense is better than Lincoln Rileys defense any day of the week and any season. Other than that I don't have a clue what this guy can do. I know saban coached at Toledo just like Matt Campbell. When lsu hired saban he had a winning record at Michigan state but was not eye popping numbers to impress you and took a chance on saban. I wouldn't know which guy to choose but Riley. Napier and Campbell seem to be good choices if had to choose one but any others ?? ?
