Former LSU head football coach Ed Orgeron is engaged to his new girlfriend, Brandy Nicole.
While serving as the Tigers’ head coach from 2016 to 2021 Orgeron amassed a 51-20 record and won a National Championship with Joe Burrow.
Along the way, however, his personal life fell apart. He split from his longtime wife and eventually got booted from LSU due in no small part to his alleged incessant flirting with other women. It appears that is all over now, though.
Orgeron made the engagement announcement on social media this weekend.

Between his pictures with college football cheerleaders and leaked bedroom photos, Orgeron has had little trouble staying in the headlines over the last few years. It just wasn’t for any substantive on-the-field accomplishments.
That could soon change, though. According to the Las Vegas Review Journal, Orgeron has been linked to possibly replacing Marcus Arroyo as UNLV’s football coach. Given that Arroyo went 7-23 over the course of three years, it really wouldn’t be all that hard to come in and top that mark.

Time will tell if anything materializes there between Orgeron and UNLV.
While Orgeron’s professional life remains in limbo, it’s nice to see that his personal life is finally settling down.
