Yes, former LSU coach Ed Orgeron was spotted at Seahawks practice on Wednesday, June 8, 2023. The Seahawks tweeted a short video of Orgeron at their team facility, in which he can be heard saying, “Go Hawks!” in his signature raspy voice.
Former LSU Coach Ed Orgeron Spotted At Seahawks Practice
According to ESPN‘s Brady Henderson, Orgeron attended as a guest of Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll. Orgeron worked on Carroll’s USC staff as an assistant from 2001 to 2004. The Trojans won back-to-back national championships during that time.
Orgeron has been out of coaching since 2021 when he resigned as LSU’s head coach after six seasons. He led the Tigers to a national championship in 2019.
It’s unclear why Orgeron was at Seahawks practice. However, it’s possible that he was there to meet with Carroll or to watch the Seahawks’ young quarterback, Tua Tagovailoa. Tagovailoa was a former teammate of Orgeron’s at USC.
Orgeron’s appearance at Seahawks practice is the latest sign that he is interested in returning to coaching. He has been linked to several coaching vacancies in recent months, including the head coaching job at USC.
It remains to be seen where Orgeron will land next, but his appearance at Seahawks practice is a sign that he is still very much interested in coaching.
