CFB: Football Scout 365 2019 Head Coach of The Year: LSU’s Ed Orgeron
Coach O has been nothing short of spectacular winning 37 games in 3 years and beating seven top ten teams along the way. Orgeron was not the top option when LSU finally settled on him as the head coach, but now it's all hindsight. The Tigers are 12-0, they beat Alabama, they are on the cusp of winning the SEC and advancing to the college football playoff as the one or two seed. Orgeron is proving to be an excellent program CEO by putting together a top staff and letting them take the wheel. The LSU train looks like it will continue to roll on strong with the nation's 2nd ranked recruiting class on according to 247 Sports composite on its way in 2020.
