“Great seats,” Orgeron said in an aisle at the Superdome.
Orgeron added that it was the first college football game he had attended as a fan since he began coaching.
Orgeron, who lives about 25 miles outside of New Orleans, did not coach this season but he said he was optimistic that he will be back on the field somewhere for the 2015 season.
“I’m just waiting for the right thing to open,” Orgeron said. “There have been some opportunities, but I’m going to wait for the right one.”
Orgeron told Times columnist Bill Plaschke in November that he would be open to returning to USC, but Sarkisian has given no indication that it would happen.
