There was a lot of talk Sunday night that former USC coach Ed Orgeron was close to joining Alabama. None were from any sources close to Orgeron and he was not in Tuscaloosa over the weekend as some claimed.
Orgeron is being very selective right now and not rushing into any jobs. He might end up at LSU before Alabama if he takes an SEC job but everything is in speculation mode right now. He made more than $1 million last season at USC so he is not desperate for money.
