Option 4: Frank Wilson — McNeese State head coach

Frank Wilson could be an intriguing option for the Tigers. He’s a former LSU assistant head coach/running backs coach who served on Les Miles’ staff from 2010-2015.

Wilson, who is a New Orleans native, was also on Orgeron’s staff at Ole Miss from 2005-2007 (and he worked with Orgeron at Tennessee in 2009).

As someone with head coaching experience and a connection to LSU, it would make some sense for the Tigers to turn his way in 2021.

But Wilson hasn’t been a very good head coach. He’s 20-29 in his career and he was just fired at UTSA in late 2019. If Wilson couldn’t handle being the head coach at UTSA, why would LSU want to hand him the keys to Tiger Stadium?

I think Wilson is a solid football coach, but he shouldn’t be the head coach at LSU.
