LSU head coach Ed Orgeron joined the SEC Coaches Teleconference Wednesday and said he and athletic director Joe Alleva had a meeting this week with offensive coordinator Matt Canada and defensive coordinator Dave Aranda.

Orgeron said that he meets with Alleva every Monday and decided this week to pull in the coordinators to get everyone on the same page.


The gathering was described as a "gut-check meeting" and was centered around “accountability,” according to The Advocate:

The discussions between offensive coordinator Matt Canada, defensive coordinator Dave Aranda, Orgeron and Alleva unfolded in Orgeron’s office, and they centered around “accountability,” a source familiar with the discussions told The Advocate. The four left the meeting in agreement on the direction of the program.

“It was a gut check meeting,” the source said. “It was more that guys need to look each other in the eye and tell each other how it is.”

Wtf is alleva doing? If anyone knows less than Orgeron, its alleva... let Canada and Aranda do their job. O needs to do what people think he can do... motivate and recruit. Both things are in the dumps right now

Anyone who has ever worked beneath someone who brings little, if anything, to the table can relate to this.

Bad look for a Manager when you boss has to come in and get your team on the same page.

Probably shouldn’t make meetings like this public. Fans and media will let their imaginations run wild. Like I said, the best thing for this team is to get out of BR ASAP and head to Gainesville!

The only thing that could make it positive is Alleva getting fired

Orgeron was such an awful hire.

What a lack of leadership. I can tell you Saban isn't bringing in his coordinators into a meeting like this. Next week O is bringing in the guy that stripes the field.

That was a good one!

This is sad.

That face of Alleva in the picture is the perfect representation of him. Looks absolutely confused and he's been pretty much confused in his entire tenure at LSU. He is in over his head.

Even if they did meet, HOW DID THE MEDIA FIND OUT ABOUT THIS?!?! Jesus Christ joe, you have ZERO awareness!

The train is completely off the rails. This kind of coaching heirarchy won't work. That was my fear and it's proving to be true. The head coach cannot be the least qualified. Things will get worse before they get better unfortunately

What a fricking shite show

The only reason Alleva would bring in the coordinators is because he does not trust O has been delivering his message properly to his coordinators. Not good.

fricking losers meeting to discuss how to make an ideal roux. I hate everyone in that room for ruining my Saturday's. I hope they all get fired and never rehired to an NCAA job unless it's ruining Bama or A&M
