Like many former LSU head football coaches, Mike Archer didn’t leave on his own accord.Archer was dismissed following the 1990 season after back-to-back losing campaigns. But that’s not to say he wasn’t part of a tremendous run of success in Baton Rouge. As an assistant under Bill Arnsparger and then the head man, the Tigers won two SEC Championships and appeared in a bowl game every season from 1984-88. During his first year in charge, LSU went 10-1-1 overall, won the Gator Bowl decisively, and finished ranked No. 5 in the nation.
