Has there ever been a coach who fits the program like CEO fits LSU?
when I think of Coaches who fit the program, and everything they stand for perfectly (and vice versa)....a few come to mind.

Pete Carroll (during USC's hey days)
Jimmy Johnson (Miami - during the days of "the U")

Maybe many didn't think of him as the best fit at first but Coach O has definitely come to epitomize everything that is LSU and the State of Louisiana. Perfect fit for each other (as long as he keeps winning of course).

To be clear, it wasn't that they didn't think he wasn't a fit for LSU (that has never been a question) -- it was that they didn't think he was a good coach.

I wasn't able to grasp the concept of "one of us" as a reason for him being hired. Now that he has proven to be able to be a solid head football coach, it is extra special having "one of us" lead this team.

Don’t know and don’t care. All I need to see and know is progress in every direction that Les Miles wasn’t making. Recruiting in areas LSU has never been CA, WA, HI. And east coast as well as Texas Louisiana, Ms an FL. There is no limit to what Oeaux will attempt, to make LSU a National Brand and successful in recruiting, developing talent, new coaching talent, installing all new offense not done in 2 decades, even under Saban. I can rest easy knowing he will go above and beyond what is needed to make LSU a powerhouse or better yet the next SEC Dynasty. Also giving extreme credit to our new Athletic Director who I believe is totally inline and supportive of what’s best for LSU Coach Oeaux and the entire Athletic Dept.
