There is a bit of revisionist history going on with Ed Orgeron, where some USC fans are saying, “he’s learned to delegate and changed as a head coach” since he was at LSU.
This is blatantly false. I spoke to Orgeron numerous times when he was interim coach at USC about how he realized he was a micro-manager at Ole Miss and he needed to change.
That’s what made his time as USC interim coach special. He focused on leading and inspiring the team and the players loved him. He didn’t try to call plays. He let the coaching staff do their jobs.
And he continued that model at LSU with better talent and better success.
But some USC fans try to desperately find a way to excuse past disastrous decisions.
- I’ve said I don’t believe Graham Harrell was ever offered the offensive coordinator job at Texas. Here’s what a beat writer for Texas said on twitter:
Yeah, Graham Harrell wasn’t offered a contract by Texas. https://t.co/yVHLIBRiLS— Anwar Richardson (@AnwarRichardson) December 17, 2019
