New Tigers’ coach Bill Busch thrilled from first impressions of LSU, Orgeron

Nearly two months after being hired as LSU’s new safeties coach, Bill Busch seems to be settling into life in the SEC quite nicely.

“You get one shot in your life to coach at LSU,” Busch said on “Hangin’ with Hester” on 104.5 ESPN Baton Rouge. “This is about as cool as it gets.”

Busch came to LSU after a two-year stint at Rutgers. He has previously worked with LSU defensive coordinator Dave Aranda at Wisconsin and with secondary coach Corey Raymond at Utah State. He is well-traveled, having worked under legendary coaches Tom Osborne, Barry Alvarez and Urban Meyer.

Still, LSU stands out.

“There is no place that I love more than (LSU),” Busch said. “I hope I coach here forever because it means we had success.”

His praise, however, did not stop there. He gushed over his early impressions of working for Ed Orgeron.

“I’ve been around a lot of good coaches, been on their staffs,” Busch said. “Our head coach—I’m telling you—is off the charts as far as how he treats people, how he handles the players, how we practice hard, his vision. Everything he wants done, it just excites me.

“Baton Rouge is straight sanity to me.”

While Busch declined to give specifics about how players are developing, he and Raymond have a tall task maximizing a secondary that is facing a numbers crunch in 2018. The Tigers return to the practice field this week after taking off for spring break.

The National L Club Spring Game is set for April 21 in Tiger Stadium.
