The head football coach of the reigning national champion LSU Tigers is volunteering to give back more than a quarter million dollars to help the athletic department meet its budgetary shortfall.

Ed Orgeron will be taking a pay cut of more than $300,000 as the school is projected to lose more than $80 million due to COVID-19.

Orgeron is the second-highest paid coach in college football, making $8.9 million this season, behind only Alabama's Nick Saban.
