Ed Orgeron may have former Dallas Cowboys coach Jimmy Johnson to thank for his job.
Johnson says he contacted LSU to say Orgeron would be the best person for the position. Orgeron worked under Johnson in 1988 as part of the Miami Hurricanes coaching staff, before Johnson went to Dallas.
Johnson says he told LSU "he was the guy".
