Who will be the next LSU football coach? After Ed Orgeron and the Tigers came to an agreement that the two would part ways after the 2021 season, one of the top programs in college football is looking for a new person to take over at the helm.

Two seasons ago, LSU won the national championship after going 15-0. The leam was led by Heisman Trophy winner Joe Burrow. Unfortunately for the Tigers, they were unable to build off of the success and have been struggling on the field. Prior to this past weekend’s win over Florida, LSU suffered back-to-back losses to Auburn and Kentucky.

With Orgeron on the outs, the oddsmakers shared their thoughts on who could take over the program with Lane Kiffin favored to fill the vacancy in Baton Rouge. Other top options include Cincinnati’s Luke Fickell, Louisiana-Lafayette’s Billy Napier, and Florida State’s Jimbo Fisher.

Among the longshots are Urban Meyer and Jon Gruden.

Who are some other top options to land the gig?

Here is a look at the betting odds and favorites to become the next LSU football head coach.
