AFR 1-21-2020 Hour 1 | Coach O talks offseason, coaching search

Weekdays 3PM - 6PM

In hour one of After Further Review, Matt recaps Coach O’s appearance on Off the Bench this morning. This is the first time we have heard from Coach O since the offseason began. The Tigers’ Head Coach addresses the coaching search for a new defensive coordinator and passing game coordinator. Orgeron was asked specifically about former LSU defensive coordinator Bo Pelini making a return to Baton Rouge. Matt expounds on this possibility.

Scott Roussell of FootballScoop.com joins Matt to talk the latest with the LSU coaching carousel. LSU is in the market for a new defensive coordinator and passing game coordinator. Former LSU DC Bo Pelini is being reported as a serious candidate to return. Roussell takes us through how Pelini’s candidacy came about.

“That started when Dave Aranda was talking to UNLV, and there was some ‘maybe I’ll consider that’ from Bo,” Roussell said. “Coach O is all about getting the right fit. Bo is a great defensive coordinator, but I don’t know if he is the right fit right now.”

Is there any other names trending with the LSU DC job?

“Well Chris Richard for sure. Other than that not really,” Roussell said. “I know O has earned everybody’s trust, so I don’t think O needs to rush this.”

On the offensive side of the ball LSU is looking to replace Joe Brady as the passing game coordinator. Who does?

“Yeah I wish I knew the answer to that,” Roussell said. “I suspect that it comes out pretty soon. Within the next two days.”

The NFL Draft is taking place in a fountain in Las Vegas this April. The players will make their way to the stage by boat. Matt reacts.
