Chase Goodbread with NFL.com has ranked LSU Defensive Coordinator John Chavis No. 4 in the nation in its 14 for ’14 Series on the top coordinators in college football. Here is what he had to say about coach Chavis.
quote:

4. John Chavis, DC, LSU
At 57 years old, Chavis' window to be a head coach somewhere might not be open too much longer. But if you're Chavis, what's wrong with being one of the most respected defensive coordinators in the game? He won the Broyles Award in 2011 as the nation's top assistant coach, and has brought the same consistently-tough defenses to LSU that he was once known for at Tennessee. Three straight Chavis defenses ranked among the nation's best from 2010-2012. And despite some critical talent that departed early for the NFL, last year's LSU defense ranked No. 15.
Complete List:
1. Kirby Smart, DC, Alabama
2. Philip Montgomery, OC, Baylor
3. Bud Foster, DC, Virginia Tech
4. John Chavis, DC, LSU
5. Chad Morris, OC, Clemson
6. Pat Narduzzi, DC, Michigan State
7. Scott Frost, OC, Oregon
8. Dave Aranda, DC, Wisconsin
9. Jake Spavital, OC, Texas A&M
10. Jeremy Pruitt, DC, Georgia
11. Mike Norvell, OC, Arizona State
12. Kurt Roper, OC, Florida
13. Lincoln Riley, OC, East Carolina
14. Justin Wilcox, DC, USC

Cam Cameron should be on this list too...

I think this season will be a great indication of how Cam stacks up against the rest of the OCs in the nation.

@tiger 11, I don't understand how Pruitt, who has coached one defense loaded with five stars and high four stars, (who was already a top tier defense anyway) is in the top 10, but Cam who has dominated the NFL ranks and turned a 5 year stagnant LSU offense around, isn't even mentioned. I've seen it on several coordinators' lists recently.

I mean you go from high school, to secondary coach, to DC for one year on a team loaded with talent and experience and already really good. How is that better than dominating the NFL for a decade, then turning around a yearly giant shite show of an offense in year one with one of the highest yard per play averages in the country?

The logic is immensely stupid to me.

There isn't a DC in the Nation that has a resume' that remotely touches the Chief's. As for Smart, he can't come close to the Chief's level of consistency over nearly two decades.

LSU's staff develops their players faster which means that the team has to start many more freshmen than almost every other school and they still d up being dominant.

No DC can match the Chief's resume period but what ticks me off is that the Chief proved himself without doubt after losing more players than any other team that I can think of in history. So instead of recognizing him, they put him under three unworthy DC's who never could have gotten LSU's defense last year into the top 20.

A. Cam Cameron had a top 10 offense in the NFL for a decade
B. He just helped, what seemed to be, an inept passing game turn around in one year

I'd think he'd be considered a top coordinator in the college ranks...proof will be in the pudding soon!
