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!

Goddammit, now I have to root for one of those SWC teams now. (Except if they’re playing LSU) Good luck Coach Aranda!

Good luck Coach Aranda! We’ll be rooting for you except when you play the Tigers. You could tell that came from the heart.

First time I remember aranda showing some emotion. O must have truly touched him.

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