Next LSU Full-Time Head Coach
Aranda has the Bears off to a 6-1 start this year after finishing 2-7 last season. The Bears have also cracked the AP Top 25 twice this season, including on Sunday, after steamrolling the BYU Cougars at home.
While Aranda has been linked as a potential candidate, there are reports that LSU is not interested in hiring their former defensive coordinator for the job, with their sights set on more accomplished coaches like Texas A&M’s Jimbo Fisher.
Aranda spent four seasons as associate head coach and defensive coordinator at LSU from 2016-2019, which included a 2020 National Championship and a 2019 SEC Championship.
