Coach O Wins Coach of the Year Award
It has been one heck of a year for the LSU Tigers and for Coach O. Now, to add to the giant winning streak, Ogeron is taking home another win. The Home Depot Coach of the Year Award. It has been eight years since a coach of LSU has won the trophy, Les Miles won it in 2011.
Ogeron has earned the trophy, just like the wins he has under his belt. 38 wins in total, and bringing the Tigers to a 13-0 season for the second time ever in the school's history.
When he was announced as the Coach of the Year, Ogeron said that the trophy is for not just for him, but his entire coaching staff. He talked about how the team is a family that is respectful, but when a family member jumps out of line there will be consequences. Hear his acceptence speech below. Congrats Coach O and good luck on December 28 in the Chick-fil-A Bowl in Atlanta!
