LSU to introduce two new football coaches
BATON ROUGE - LSU athletics officials said they will introduce two new coaches for the Tiger football program Wednesday afternoon.
The university confirmed Tuesday they'd hired former Alabama linebacker coach Kevin Steele. On Wednesday LSU also said they'd hired former Ole Miss head coach Ed Orgeron to be the Tigers' new defensive line coach.
Both coaches are hailed as exceptional recruiters, with Steele helping land the No. 1 recruiting class last year at Alabama. Orgeron was 10-25 at Ole Miss from 2005-07, then took Southern California 6-2 as interim head coach after Lane Kiffin was fired.
Steele replaces defensive coordinator John Chavis, who left LSU for Texas A&M the day after the Tigers played in the Music City Bowl. Orgeron takes a spot on the coaching staff currently occupied by Brick Haley, who could be shuffled off-field or could reportedly be following Chavis to Texas A&M.
Steele and Orgeron will be introduced at a 4 p.m. press conference at LSU.
