Ed Orgeron says that as a Louisiana native, it's "a dream" to have the opportunity to be LSU's head coach.

The 55-year-old Orgeron, who was formally introduced as Les Miles' interim replacement on Monday, says he has no idea whether he'll have the job past this season and isn't saying whether he sees his opportunity as an audition to remain for the longer term.

He says his only concern is the happiness of LSU players and seeing them win.

Orgeron says he's tapped current assistant Steve Ensminger, a former LSU quarterback, to replace offensive coordinator Cam Cameron, who was fired on Sunday along with Miles.

Orgeron says the offense will be "tweaked" to feature more spread formations.

LSU's first game under Orgeron is Saturday in Tiger Stadium against Missouri.
