LSU fired head coach Les Miles and offensive coordinator Cam Cameron on Sunday.
According to FOX Sports’ Bruce Feldman, the Tigers have named former Ole Miss head coach Ed Orgeron the interim head coach. He previously served as the Tigers defensive line coach under Miles.

Orgeron’s tenure at Ole Miss was by all accounts an unsuccessful one, as the former USC defensive line coach was 10-25 during his three years in Oxford from 2005-07. He won just three of 24 SEC games.
He does, however, have a good track record as an interim head coach in recent seasons. Following the mid-season firing of Lane Kiffin at USC in 2013, Orgeron led the Trojans to a 6-2 record down the stretch. He was considered for the full-time position, but USC chose to instead hire Steve Sarkisian.
In addition to his three years at Ole Miss and the last two seasons at LSU as defensive line coach, Orgeron also spent a season at Tennessee as a member Lane Kiffin’s Vols staff before following him back to USC in 2010.
