Former LSU Tigers head coach Ed Orgeron, also known as "Coach O," appeared in a commercial for Rhoback gym shorts, and it has the internet buzzing.
The 62-year-old former head coach actually looks pretty jacked, especially if you compare him to coaches his age.
I just saw the most unsettling ad ever and now you must pic.twitter.com/3zbnHqcNdi

Orgeron, who coached the Tigers from 2015-2016 as the defensive line coach before taking over as head coach from 2016-2021, can be seen shirtless in the commercial.
"I'm Coach O. If you're an athlete like me, you rock the Rhoback gym shorts," the former national champion said in the ad, in his signature voice. "They're lightweight, easy to move in. So go check them out. Rhoback.com."
The user who posted the ad received plenty of responses.

"Need to get @BigRandyNLU and @ngschuNLU to do a collaboration with Coach O on the next Strapped series. Get a little Rhoback #synergy up and running," another user wrote.

During the college football offseason, Orgeron expressed interest in taking the head coaching job for the Northwestern Wildcats, according to Bradley Locker of Inside NU.
Former LSU head coach Ed Orgeron ?would have interest? in the Northwestern job if the Wildcats go after him, @Bradley_Locker reports.

However, Bruce Feldman of The Athletic reported something different.
Spoke to Ed Orgeron. There is no truth to the report that he has any interest in the Northwestern coaching job nor has he heard from anyone at Northwestern.

"Spoke to Ed Orgeron," Feldman reported. "There is no truth to the report that he has any interest in the Northwestern coaching job nor has he heard from anyone at Northwestern."
Coach O's time with LSU ended when he and the school agreed to part ways after back-to-back .500 seasons in 2020 and 2021. He coached players including Joe Burrow, Justin Jefferson and Ja'Marr Chase, but the wheels fell off the wagon after the national championship win.
In any event, we'll eagerly await more Coach O updates, whether they involve coaching or commercials like this.
