With the coaching search in full swing, Lincoln Riley is a name that is most popular amongst social media and fans for the LSU Football Head Coach position.
Blake Ruffino from ‘Are You Serious Sports Network’ says, “There is Lincoln Riley, the head coach of Oklahoma. In my opinion, I still think he was a top candidate that LSU is going after."
"I don’t know as of today, starting at 6:00 this morning, it has been nothing but a whirlwind of new coaches that LSU is going after," Ruffino says. "I still think that he is up there.”
This possible candidate is leading many to wonder, ‘what can Lincoln Riley bring to the LSU Football program?’
“What LSU has lacked over the past 20 years is somebody that knows one side of the ball, meaning offense or defense, I think that he is a fix to your offense," Ruffino added.
"Over the last couple of weeks, we’ve had a lot of struggles," he continued. "I think he’s a great offensive-minded guy, and he’s a great developer of quarterbacks and I think he fixes that day one.”
For many, this coaching search will continue to be a waiting game until an official announcement is made.
