Orgeron to Tennessee

After days and days of where will he go, New Orleans Saints defensive line coach and former Ole Miss head coach Ed Orgeron is going to join the staff at Tennessee to work with Lane Kiffin as the two former Southern Cal assistants reunite.

Orgeron confirmed to Rivals.com recruiting analyst Jamie Newburg that he had indeed decided to come to Rocky Top.

Last night, rumors swirled that Orgeron was heading to Baton Rouge to join Les Miles' staff. LSU denied that story Tuesday night and for the last week Orgeron had given indication to some that he would go to Tennessee while telling others that he was going to LSU and he had told some that he was staying with the Saints.

On Wednesday, Orgeron and his family were in Destin, Florida and received a visit from Vol head coach Lane Kiffin and defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin.

Orgeron is expected to be the defensive line coach and recruiting coordinator and he is expected to make around 600-thousand dollars.
