LSU's Orgeron: Wife and pastors 'coach' him in life
BATON ROUGE, La. (BP) – Ed Orgeron's coaching resumé is pretty well known around the country but not much is known about his religious life.
However, LSU's head football coach – "Coach O" – and his wife Kelly shared glimpses into their walk of faith amid his demanding career path during the 2017 Louisiana Pastors' Legislative Briefing co-sponsored by the Louisiana Family Forum and Louisiana Baptists' Office of Public Policy in the Old State Capitol in Baton Rouge.
Orgeron, asked whether he had a "coach" in life during an informal interview with Gary Borgstede, executive pastor and chief administrative officer of the Church of the King in Mandeville, smiled in response.
