During Dave Aranda's introductory press conference at Baylor on Monday, the former LSU defensive coordinator had nothing but high praise for Ed Orgeron.
quote:

"I have such great respect and love for Coach O," Aranda said. "When I called Coach O and told him that I was taking the Baylor job, he was so happy for me."

"I told him that I have learned more from him, than any other coach I have been around. His story of hardships, learning from those hardships, applying lessons learned, having success, and then sharing it with a group of men... There isn't a better story than that and I'm so blessed to be a part of that."

I wish we had him for a few more years but will always be appreciative of what he did here at LSU, and the 2019-20 team in particular. That defense was wicked at the end of year, when everyone got healthy.

I'm going to miss Dave. He was my mad scientist :wah:. He's going to do great at Baylor though. He's been Associate Head Coach under a proven winner who has one of the greatest redemption stories in college football history, and I think Dave will apply those lessons to his future path. Go Baylor! Give them Sooners a beatdown every year!

Dave looked genuinely touched. Didn't know they were that close but it speaks very well of Coach Orgeron.
