Former LSU Coach O Has a New Job… in Fashion?
I had to do some digging to see if this is true... but it looks like it is! Well.... Former LSU Football Head Coach Ed Orgeron has gotten a new gig... but it's not coaching. It's not even in football.
Say hello to the new interim CEO of Rhoback. Wait... what? The colorful coach from Larose, Louisiana is the interim CEO of a major sports fashion apparel brand? Seems so...
And it might not be as far fetched as it initially sounds, especially when you check out their website, where they say:
We believe in dogs and the "tongue-out-the-window" feeling.
We believe our customers are our best models.
We believe in living with soul, not ego.
Well, maybe not the ego part... but the dogs and tongue out the window part I can buy....
In the promo, Coach O says, "Help me keep this job! Go to Rhoback dot com, check out the best active wear on the market!"
Coach O led the Bayou Bengals as head coach from 2016, after Les Miles was fired, through 2021. He was named the 2019 AP College Football Coach of the Year, as well as Home Depot Coach of the Year. It was Coach O that led the Tigers to one of the most storied seasons in all of college football, when LSU finished 15-0, defeating Clemson 42-25 to win the 2019 National Championship on January 14, 2020.
Whether it's serious, or all in good fun... Coach O is having a good time. Geaux Rheauxback!
