Coach O's time at LSU is coming to an end. Reports surfaced on Sunday, a day after the Tigers got an upset win over Florida.
Ed Orgeron and LSU reached a separation agreement that will make the 2021 season his last as the school's head football coach.
Negotiations began last week before UF win.
It’s unprecedented in the sport - coach & school divorcing 21 months after winning it all.

After that news broke there were reports that Coach O's chasing of women played a factor in the decision to get rid of him. That includes an incident involving the pregnant wife of a high ranking LSU official.
Coach O is said to have asked the married woman if she wanted to workout with him. When she told him she was pregnant and married he is said to have responded by asking her why that mattered.
From The Athletic:
It created messes for him, like the time Orgeron pulled up to a woman at a gas station wearing exercise attire. “Hey, you look like you work out,” he said, according to multiple sources. “We could work out together.” The woman informed Orgeron she was married and pregnant, to which he responded, “Why does that matter?”
That woman was the wife of a high-ranking LSU official. Word of this reached the LSU Board of Supervisors, the collection of prominent Louisiana attorneys and business owners appointed by the governor who make the most important decisions at LSU. And of course, it reached LSU athletic director Scott Woodward.
Coach O burned bright at LSU. What a run. He'll always have a National Championship and the picture of himself in bed with a blonde. You can't top that!
