Coaching Carousel Continues with Shocking Moves

11/29/2021

The LSU Tigers are set to hire Notre Dame's Brian Kelly as the new head football coach.  LSU's athletic director Scott Woodward began his search to replace Ed Orgeron since October 17.  While many speculated that Texas A&M head coach Jimbo Fisher would jump ship, we can believe Fisher was telling the truth of not wanting to move to LSU because of what he has built with the Aggies.  

There are more shocking moves as Lincoln Riley left Oklahoma and accepted the head coaching job at USC.  The Oklahoma Sooners' administration and fans were shocked and felt blindsided on the move.  The domino effect on the transaction is that five-star quarterback Malachi Nelson decommits.  Three others did the same.  Quarterback Spencer Rattler, who was the preseason Heisman hopeful, placed himself in the transfer portal.  Oklahoma's legendary head coach Bob Stoops, the head coach prior to Riley, will serve as the interim head coach.
