Tom Herman The Favorite To Land The LSU Job
Tom Herman, the current head coach at the University of Houston, is the odds on favorite to become the next coach for the LSU Tigers.
That's the thinking of Bovada.lv, who has Herman listed as the 5/4 favorite to replace former coach Les Miles, who was fired on Sunday.
Jimbo Fisher, the current head coach at Florida St., and the former offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach at LSU from 2000-2006, is next, with 3/1 odds.
Larry Fedora, the current head coach at North Carolina, and former head coach at Southern Miss, checks in next, at 4/1, followed by former WKU, and current USF coach Willie Taggart, who they give 6/1 odds.
LSU's current interim coach, Ed Orgeron, a former head coach at Ole Miss, is listed with 9/1 odds.
Lane Kiffin, the current offensive coordinator at Alabama, and the former head coach at Tennessee and USC, as well as the Oakland Raiders, is next on the board, with 12/1 odds.
TCU’s Gary Patterson, along with former Oregon and current San Francisco 49ers head coach Chip Kelly both come in at 15/1.
Rounding out the list are Louisville head coach Bobby Petrino, at 18/1, and former Baylor head coach Art Briles at 28/1.
