According to Jordy on OTB, LSU didnt interview Pelini
Last year before hiring him.
Exact quote “lsu got burned In this process last season, where they did not interview their candidate, in bo pelini. They figured out alot Of things on the job about pelini they didnt like, some things That they probably would've figured out if they wouldve talked to him for an amount of time Before bringing him in”

This shouldnt surprise me, but....what the actual frick

Offering a $2.3 million contract to someone who hasn't been a DC in 13 years...and without interviewing.

Absolute failure all around by everyone in the administration, including Woodward. That's just downright embarrassing.

I find that very hard to believe. Even if it wasn’t a “formal” interview, I’m sure conversations were had.

No fricking way. Could you imagine the "CEO" of any other company doing this shite, having it fail spectacularly, and keeping their job? I'm a fan of O but this shite is inexcusable

re: According to Jordy on OTB, LSU didnt interview Pelini
And yet we had some posters here suggest we should hire another defensive coordinator without interviewing this year. Gotta chuckle at the stupidity sometimes. Lol

re: According to Jordy on OTB, LSU didnt interview Pelini
I’ve heard before that Ensminger was the one that convinced Orgeron to bring Brady in after going to the Saints coaches meeting. If that’s the case, then what good hire does Orgeron get credit for?

IDK what I'm more embarrassed at, Ed or Woodward.

Formal interview I could see not happening, but there is no way Orgeron and Woodward didn't have lengthy conversations with Bo about the possibility of coming over to take the DC job.

I think Jordy is hung up on semantics here.

re: According to Jordy on OTB, LSU didnt interview Pelini
Wtf?! I wouldn't hire a janitor without interviewing him, and we hired a DC and gave him him a multi-year, multi-million dollar contract without one?!

This has to be wrong.

This is crazy. I can understand fellow coaches, who already knew Bo, would just go ahead. But how would administration just rubber stamp something this huge. Too busy with what?

re: According to Jordy on OTB, LSU didnt interview Pelini
Well it comes from Jordy, a guy with a good relationship with orgeron who is likely his source.
The sad thing was, it seemed like Jordy and Tbob were using the info as almost a good thing that this time they arent just hiring a guy like arnett, but are going through the interview process
