Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports
Former LSU center Kevin Mawae received an interview by Les Miles for the offensive line job, but it is being reported that LSU has hired Virginia Tech offensive line coach Jeff Grimes for the job.

Mawae sent out the following statement to various media members:
quote:

"I did have a rather lengthy interview on Sunday morning, and in no way did I think it was just a 'courtesy interview'. It was (Tuesday) that I would not be the guy, and just this morning read that the position has been offered to Jeff Grimes of VaTech."

"I do not believe my knowledge of X's and O's was a deterrent, rather (coach) Les (Miles) and Cam's (offensive coordinator Cameron) desire to have a coach who has proven to place players in the NFL. I am thankful for the opportunity to have interviewed for the job at LSU, my alma mater and I hope that Coach Grimes, or whomever they officially announce as the next O-Line coach, is everything that LSU needs and what Les and his staff wants in both a coach and a recruiter."

"Again, I want to thank Coach Miles and Coach Cameron for their time and the consideration they gave me! I will always Love Purple and Live Gold, Forever LSU! GEAUX TIGERS!"

yes, he is way too awesome to pass up....I think he makes some impact but should be considered as an investment over the long haul

Good move by both Les and Kevin in this case. Glad he got a real interview and glad Kevin handled the rejection with class. While he may not be the guy at THIS POINT for the OL coaching position, if he's truly interested in being one sooner rather than later maybe he's up to being part of the staff in another capacity with the opportunity to move up?

Can't imagine anything bad from having Mawae as part of the program...regardless of the capacity.

I would like to have him aboard , I know that coach Miles had a list of qualications that his new coach had to fill and I think it is great that he had a plan and stuck to it But it would be great to have the man some where on our staff !
