Not many can say they saw it coming… but Ed Orgeron has surprisingly become the latest sports figure to become an overnight social media sensation after the former LSU football coach was spotted chatting with bikini-clad women on a beach earlier this week.
In images shared to TikTok on Thursday, Orgeron, 61, can be seen approaching two beachgoers while appearing to hold hands with a woman believed to be his fiancée.
“Getting rizzled by Coach O,” the video’s caption read.
In May, Orgeron announced on Twitter that he was engaged to his girlfriend, Brandy Nicole. The college football coach filed for divorce from his previous wife, Kelly, in April 2020. The two had been married for 23 years.
But that doesn’t seem to matter much to fans on TikTok, who praised Orgeron’s ‘rizz’ or ‘play’ with the ladies in the comments section of the video.

Orgeron rose to the pinnacle of college football during his time as LSU coach from 2016 to 2021.
The former LSU coach shared on Twitter that he got engaged to his girlfriend, Brandy Nicole, in May.
‘The guy is leather, legend!’ one user wrote.
“Always recruiting,” another TikTok viewer commented.
‘Coach O laying the groundwork,’ another fan commented.
Orgeron made a name for himself as the head coach of the LSU Tigers from 2016 to 2021, especially after the team went on a 15-0 run during the 2019 season.
Ultimately, he led the Tigers to a national championship in January 2020 under then-QB Joe Burrow, defeating the Clemson Tigers, led by then-QB Trevor Lawrence at the time.
Two seasons later, Orgeron walked out the door at LSU.
Brian Kelly was named his successor in November 2021 after guiding Notre Dame back to the College Football Playoff in 2018 and 2020.

The LSU Tigers won the national championship in January 2020 with Orgeron and Joe Burrow
Orgeron met with former US President Donald Trump during a White House invitation in January 2020.
Last season, the Tigers had a 10-4 record.
Lately, however, Orgeron’s name has been linked to the head coaching vacancy at Northwestern following the firing of Pat Fitzgerald.
Multiple sources reported that Orgeron would “have an interest” in the job, but The Athletic’s Bruce Feldman denied the claims.
I spoke with Ed Orgeron. There is no truth to the report that he has any interest in the Northwestern coaching job nor has he heard from anyone at Northwestern,” Feldman said in a tweet last week.
Fitzgerald was fired earlier this month following accusations of promoting “a culture that allows racism” and details about the hazing allegations.
