LSU interim head coach Ed Orgeron is fighting to keep the Tigers’ top job, but former SEC standout and LSU alum Booger McFarland doesn’t think there’s any way he can do so, according to Kevin Ryan of 247sports (via SEC Country).

Here’s what McFarland said on ESPN’s College Football Live:

“I think they’re looking for something they’ve never had,” McFarland said, according to Ryan. “That’s a head coach with an offensive background, a head coach that can bring a young quarterback in here and get some excitement. … I don’t know of anything, in my opinion, that he can do to keep this job.”

Apparently even unlikely wins over Ole Miss and Alabama in consecutive weeks wouldn’t be enough for Orgeron to keep the gig.

Hot names with offensive backgrounds that have been linked to LSU include Houston’s Tom Herman, FSU’s Jimbo Fisher, Ole Miss’ Hugh Freeze and North Carolina’s Larry Fedora.
