Ed Orgeron is 1-0 as head coach at LSU after a victory over Missouri. The question looming over the program continues to be whether or not he can keep that job and become the permanent head coach.
Some have suggested that he has to at least win out the remainder of LSU’s games to even be considered for the position. SEC Network analyst Tony Barnhart doesn’t think the road will be easy for Orgeron, voicing his opinion on the Paul Finebaum Show Wednesday
"It will be very difficult for Ed Orgeron to get the job permanently…LSU is going to want a big name with an offensive background" @MrCFB

The Tigers play Southern Miss this weekend before Ole Miss comes to town followed by Alabama. If the Florida game is rescheduled, LSU would finish with three straight conference games on the road. Not an easy task for Orgeron, who has seemingly already given the program a shot in the arm.
The high profile nature of the job in Baton Rouge means the Tigers will certainly make sure to do their due diligence on the position. Names such as Jimbo Fisher and Tom Herman are among those who might be courted by LSU athletic director Joe Alleva.
