BATON ROUGE - Add Coach O to the list of LSU players and coaches earning accolades heading into the Peach Bowl.
On Wednesday, Orgeron was announced as the Home Depot Coach of the Year. The winner is selected annually by ESPN and ABC college football analysts.
Orgeron is also in the running for the historic Eddie Robinson Award, for which the winner will be announced during the Sugar Bowl on Jan. 11. Orgeron would be the first LSU head coach to win the award since Nick Saban, who took it in 2003.
