Report: New Orleans Area High School Football Coaches Considering LSU Boycott

Several New Orleans area high school coaches reportedly aren't happy with LSU's first-year head coach Ed Orgeron.

According to SEC Country, several New Orleans area high school football coaches will gather on Thursday night to discuss a potential boycott of the LSU football program.

Multiple black football head coaches from the area are meeting to discuss head coach Ed Orgeron's handling of Jabbar Juluke, an LSU running backs coach who was demoted on Feb. 2— just a day after National Signing Day.

From SEC Country:

Juluke, who was responsible for landing 3-star wide receiver Racey McMath and securing the commitments of 4-star quarterback Lowell Narcisse, 3-star tailback Clyde Edwards-Helaire and 3-star athlete Jontre Kirklin, was reassigned within the football program on Feb. 2, the day after signing day.

Area high school football coaches are unhappy with the way Orgeron handled the process, indicating that LSU’s first-year head coach took advantage of Juluke through the final weeks of the recruiting cycle to sign the prospects to letters of intent, then dismiss him, sources told SEC Country.

Orgeron has been made aware of the meeting, and despite apparent efforts to stop the meeting from occurring and planned attempts to rectify the situation, the meeting is set to move forward, with a boycott of LSU expected to follow.

This is the first mini-crisis of Orgeron's tenure in Baton Rouge, so it will be interesting to see how he handles it moving forward.
