LSU coach Ed Orgeron joined 104.5 ESPN's "Off The Bench" Tuesday morning and talked about TJ Finley's decision to transfer out of the program. Here's what he had to say:

"TJ did everything right," Orgeron explained. "He said, 'Coach, I need to have a meeting with you.' It was very heartfelt. It was a very hard decision for him. He felt that it was the best decision for him and his career."
"Obviously, I asked and tried to have him stay. I think the world of TJ. I think he's a great young man and a great quarterback. He felt it was something he needed to do, but he did everything right, he did it first class and we wish him the very best wherever he goes, and wherever he goes someone is going to get a great young man and a great quarterback."
