Sports Illlustrated: LSU Has To Hire Tom Herman Or Jimbo Fisher

LSU's head coaching search has begun.

LSU, which fired longtime head coach Les Miles and offensive coordinator Cam Cameron today, will begin its search to find the next leader of its football program.

Who will they be looking at?

Per Sports Illustrated, these two men: Houston's Tom Herman and Florida State's Jimbo Fisher.

It's basically those two or bust for LSU, per SI.

From SI:

A two-horse race has clearly emerged to replace Miles between Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher and Houston coach Tom Herman. Fisher was the top candidate on the board of LSU’s administrators—and some might say the only candidate—when LSU flirted with firing Miles last season.

Each candidate would bring a skill set that LSU has desperately lacked throughout Miles’ 12-year tenure—distinguished offensive acumen and an ability to develop quarterbacks.

Who should LSU hire?
