During the SEC Coaches Teleconference on Wednesday, LSU head coach Ed Orgeron said that he will work with defensive coordinator Dave Aranda to prep for Alabama's offense which is run by his former colleague Lane Kiffin. Per

“Those things I can mention are obvious things (to Aranda),” the coach said Wednesday during the SEC coaches teleconference. “I will help out with formations, but Dave is outstanding. Kiffin has brought Alabama to the spread offense, it’s all spread running the quarterback. Now he’s in the shotgun and pistol.”
Orgeron and Kiffin were both on the same coaching staff at Southern Cal under head coach Pete Carrol from 2001-2004.

Both coaches connected again when Kiffin hired Orgeron to be the DL coach at Tennesee in 2009 and again when he took over at USC from 2010-2013.

To this day, both Orgeron and Kiffin are good friends at talk multiple times a week. With the Nov. 5th showdown between LSU and Alabama quickly approaching, Orgeron says those phone calls will stop until after the game. Per The Advocate:

“I talk to him two to three times a week, but we’re going to take a hiatus these next two weeks,” Orgeron said Tuesday. “I know he’s going to want to talk to me, but I ain’t answering back. I know how he is.”

Didn't know Coach O and LK talk that much. Pretty funny how Coach O said he won't answer over the next couple weeks. Lol

"Dave has figured it out" -- that's music to my ear and somehow make me feel peaceful.

In Aranda we trust. We talk about getting a head coach that has a great offensive mind and that can out X's and O's any other coach in the country. I truly believe we have that on the defensive side of the ball. Aranda is a genius.
