Ed Orgeron and LSU have reportedly agreed to a six-year contract worth more than $42 million, according to Bruce Feldman with Fox Sports/The Athletic. The new deal was later confirmed by LSU:
quote:

The new six-year agreement includes a base annual salary of $6 million. In addition, Coach O will receive a $5 million split-dollar life insurance policy payable over the first two years of the agreement. In total, the agreement is worth more than $42 million, before bonuses.

The agreement is pending approval of the LSU Board of Supervisors.

"Coach O has set a new standard at LSU," said LSU Athletic Director Scott Woodward. "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."
Last March, Orgeron signed a two-year, $4 million contract extension that made him the 24th highest-paid coach in College Football. His new deal makes him the 5th highest-paid coach in the country.

Remember folks, Alleva deserves credit for this title more than Woodward who sent A&M back a decade.

He does deserve some credit for the hire, but he also deserved to be sent packing. Hiring and firing of coaches is such a small part of what the AD does. Alleva failed miserably when it came to highly publicized issues (Les Miles 2015, Florida hurricane game and most of all, Will Wade suspension).

Well deserved Coach O and yes he should have won over the naysayers on this board by now, but again we got some idiots that are never satisfied. Keep it going Coach O for Louisiana.

What people don’t realize is the boost to the Louisiana economy winning a national .

Local economy*

There is also a huge economic benefit to LSU and the athletic department that having a player winning the Heisman Trophy brings. When you combine the economic boom from winning the CFP with a Heisman Trophy winning player with the visibility of that Joe Burrow had this season, the economics are out of the roof.
