Defensive line coach Ed Orgeron said all the right things today (if you were Lane Kiffin) during his interview on the Petros and Money show. He said Kiffin is “bright” and “articulate,” which is what he tells reporters.
He even took what I considered a shot at defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin when he said, “We’ve answered some of the questions we had on the staff.”
What he didn’t answer was why so many decommits were specifically defensive linemen and he didn’t provide much reason for optimism if you doubt Kiffin can turn around the program or that players no longer believe in Kiffin. But Orgeron is an assistant coach, not a miracle worker.
Here is the full interview.
