The Ed Orgeron era is officially coming to an end at LSU and that means the Tigers will be in need of a new head coach.
One the names in consideration is former Oklahoma head coach Bob Stoops, as he was given 9/1 odds for the job according to BetOnline. The full odds list is below:
Odds to be the next LSU head coach
Bob Stoops was the head coach of Oklahoma for 18 seasons from 1999-2016. During that time, Stoops compiled a 190-48 record and also won 9 bowl games. He also led the Sooners to the BCS Championship game in 2008, where they fell to the Florida Gators 24-14.
Stoops’ name continues to surface in job openings, as he also was listed as a potential candidate for the USC Trojans after their job opened up several weeks ago.
Bob Stoops is not currently employed by a team, but works as part of FOX’s college football coverage. His son Drake is a wide receiver for the Sooners. Also, his younger brother Mark, currently the head coach of Kentucky, also made the list with slightly better odds at 17/2.
