Ed Orgeron responds to job speculation after upset win over Florida
Even with Saturday's 49-42 win over Florida, Ed Orgeron is apparently on the hot seat. Jordan Prather-USA TODAY Sports

LSU coach Ed Orgeron had a typically curt response when asked about his job security on Saturday.

The Tigers upset Florida in a 49-42 shootout on Saturday, temporarily taking some of the heat off Orgeron. It didn’t completely save him from job speculation, however.

Orgeron was asked about his job, but the coach deflected attention to his players and said he was taking the situation one day at a time.

There’s not much Orgeron can say at this point. On Saturday alone, there were rumors about his potential replacement. Some inexplicable play during the Florida game probably won’t help either.

Nevertheless, Orgeron couldn't have hurt himself with LSU’s win. In fact, he might have put his counterpart on the hot seat, too.
