***UPDATE: In a release Monday, LSU confirmed it had "agreed to mutually part ways" with Pelini.

It was only inevitable that LSU and Bo Pelini parted ways after a terrible Tinder date. Multiple reports say LSU is swiping right and looking for a new defensive coordinator.

Ed Orgeron shifted the Tigers' to a 4-3 base defense after Dave Aranda took his system to Baylor last off-season. He glowed with optimism in the preseason. He did not in the end.

In one season under Pelini, LSU finished near the bottom in ever major defensive category in the SEC for the first time since 2008. LSU allowed 492 yards-per-game (13th) 34.9 points-per-game (11th) 323 passing ypg (13th.)
