Ed Orgeron tells Fighting Ireland football team ‘you will win it all’ during visit to Notre Dame with sons

SOUTH BEND, Ind. – Former LSU football coach Ed Orgeron will be at Notre Dame this week with his two sons who are interested in a coaching career, Notre Dame coach Marcus Freeman told ESPN on Wednesday.

It’s a strange association of inter-school coaching, as former Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly left to replace Orgeron at LSU in late November, after it was announced in mid-October that Orgeron won’t return in 2022. Freeman, who replaced Kelly at Notre Dame, was also interviewed with Orgeron at LSU in early 2021 for the position of Tigers defensive coordinator.

Freeman said he met Orgeron during an interview at LSU last year and called him “a wonderful human being.” They stayed in touch, even after Freeman called Orgeron to say he wasn’t taking the job.

Orgeron has three sons, Tyler, and twins Parker and Cody. Parker and Tyler are members of his LSU coaching staff.

“I would love for my sons to be able to come and experience what Notre Dame football has to offer,” Freeman said. “I said, ‘Coach O, sure, whenever you want up.”

Freeman said they arrived on Monday and would leave on Thursday or Friday.

Freeman said: “Whenever you have someone who has done the things that he’s done – he’s been 43 years, I think today he was talking about the experience… I was stupid for not trying to capture it. some of that knowledge. “I’ve had a chance for him to speak to the team. He’s attended some of our meetings, I pick his brain on different things as a head coach. Today Now he’s presented to our staff with his vision, some of the things he’s learned, 43 years of coaching on what it takes to have a successful football program. And so, For us, having him here is as beneficial as hoping it has been for his sons.”

Notre Dame’s head of defense Isaiah Foskey said Orgeron spoke to the players on Tuesday and told them they were like a “fist”, in that they were better together instead of five fish. The nucleus is spread out like the fingers on an open hand.

“We are all greater together,” Foskey said. “He was talking about the O-line, we saw an incident where one person went down, and everyone picked up and kept going, surrounding him. We’re better than a team.”

According to a video provided to ESPN of Orgeron talking to the Fighting Irish, Orgeron told the players they were going to win a national title.

“I don’t know when that will happen,” he said, “but with this staff, and this team, you win it all.”
