LSU is looking to hire someone that can bring the football program back into form.
Someone that can stand the test of two or three years and bring consistency back to the team.
ESPN Studio Host and college football play-by-play announcer Matt Barrie joined the Paul Finebaum Show to talk about the LSU vacancy.
Here is what Barrie had to say about whoever LSU chooses to hire.
This needs to be the time LSU grabs themselves a coach who can be there for a decade and compete for a National Championship on an annual basis. If you put yourself in position with the right coach now you can dominate the SEC West for years to come.
This has been a thought of mine for quite some time now. I’ve been looking at all of these candidates for the LSU job, and I’ve been asking myself one important question- If LSU gets the ‘splash’ hire that they want, can he outlast Saban?
Recall what Nick Saban said the other day.

Saban’s contract runs through the end of the 2028 season, seven years from now. Earlier this year Saban said the contract should take him to his retirement. Regardless, Nick Saban is here to stay for as long as he can hold out over the next decade.
Can the man LSU hire to replace Orgeron win enough to still be here when Saban leaves? Like Matt Barrie said, if they can, LSU could be the first to get a grip on the SEC West once Saban leaves.
