This is probably not the news that LSU fans want to see based on the current state of the football program but Ed Orgeron ranks as the second-highest-paid coach in the country, according to the latest USA Today's 2021 coaching salary database.

Orgeron's total pay of $9,012,917.00 is second behind Nick Saban's $9,753,221.00.

Out of the Top-10 highest-paid coaches on the list, five are from SEC schools: Saban, Orgeron, Dan Mullen, Jimbo Fisher, and Kirby Smart.

That's really absurd that he makes that much with so little to show for it. Shame on LSU admins

I think the Stanford coach is more of a shocker than Orgeron.

Bwahahahaha. Its a robbery. They should've just driven to fourchon and grabbed a deckhamd of the first shrimp boat they found...that random guy would be better than O. He sucks.

I'm a bit concerned Woodward is not as smart as yall claim. What a terrible contract to give to Coach O. Nobody was trying to steal O away so don't use that excuse.

Yea he may have to hire a good high school coach for 350K/ year to atone for the O mistaque.

It's good to know that if LSU and Orgeron part ways, Ed won't starve.

So why did LSU pay him so much? To keep him? He is unproven in the long run at any HC job he has had! I see no issue paying these coaches good money, but performance should be where the big money is. NC=big check, 5 and 5 equal base money only. This year he should get less than base pay. He will never be a HC at any other major school and the people analyzing talent should have known that. It was a easy lazy hire with little thought.

He is so unproven he is one of a small handful of active coaches with a Natty. Listen to yourself. You can hate all you want but without O LSU does not win it in 2019.

@cdawson. I could have “coached” LSU to the natty in 2019 with that talent and top notch coordinators.

At least he's won a national title. Shaw, Mullen and Riley have nothing to show for what they're being paid.

Don't try and make sense to the rantard haters. It's time for O to go but that Natty is worth every penny that LSU has spent on him.

I could win a championship with that national title team, all I would have to do is stand on the sidelines, clap, and scream " Lets geaux " all night long............. Geaux Tigers!
