According to ESPN 104.5’s Charles Hanagriff, per Jacques Doucet, LSU has made a “substantial offer” to FSU’s Jimbo Fisher to be its next head coach (H/T SEC Country):
According to CBS Sports, the Tigers could finalize an agreement by this weekend, after LSU’s regular-season finale against Texas A&M Thursday night.
There’s been plenty of chatter around the head coaching gig, with LSU “optimistic” they can land Fisher.
LSU is shifting its focus with whatever new hire the Tigers go after, heading in a more offensively-minded direction.
A prior report noted whoever LSU hires needs to be able to develop at the quarterback position and recruit offensive talent. Fisher has a proven background in that area, and if previous reports are accurate, it’s difficult to imagine this one doesn’t get done despite his insistence that he’s happy at FSU.
