LSU interim head coach Ed Orgeron said change is on the way for LSU football.

Orgeron said practices will be shortened, and meeting time will be increased. LSU will not practice in pads on Monday or Thursday. Orgeron said change was necessary. He met with the media, one day after he was promoted to interim head coach after Les Miles was fired.

Orgeron confirmed that Pete Jenkins will return as defensive line coach. And, that tight ends coach Steve Ensminger will coordinate the LSU offense and coach the quarterbacks. Ensminger will also call the offensive plays.

Orgeron said clock management will be a big emphasis moving forward. LSU completed the winning touchdown pass on what was to be the final play at Auburn. But the replay booth reversed the call, saying time expired before the ball was snapped.

Orgeron's first game as LSU head coach is Saturday at 6:30 pm in Tiger Stadium against Missouri.
