Ed Orgeron ready to eat some burgers after upset win of Texas A&M in final Tigers game
Ed Orgeron is on the way out of LSU as he coached his final game on Saturday, after the LSU Tigers edged out the Texas A&M Aggies, 27-24. Orgeron’s separation from LSU comes after he coached the Tigers to their 2019 championship, and months after sexual misconduct cases concerning LSU and its football program were put forward. The parting of ways between Orgeron and LSU means that Orgeron will not coach the Tigers in their upcoming bowl game.
For now, Orgeron is focused on enjoying the simple things and taking life one step at a time, as Paolo Uggetti of ESPN writes:
“I want to take a little time off. I’m 60 years old, I’ve coached for 37 years. I think I’m going to have enough money to buy me a hamburger and every once in a while maybe a double meat cheeseburger. I want to take a little time off to find out what direction I want to be in. Today I think I’m not going to coach, but that might be different a month from now. But right now I want to take a little time off and spend it with my kids”
Orgeron’s future looks to be filled with burgers, kids, and maybe some football. Whether or not Ed Orgeron returns to the field is still a mystery, but the veteran coach seems like he’s looking forward to his time off, however temporary it may be.
