Why Cam Cameron ?


I am not pro or con on him at this point.

I really dont know his style over the years. I know the Ravens story, but I also know that Pro Football is a fickle game.

So why Cameron and not one of the hot young spread guru's ?

Serious Thoughts ?

Because he is proven to have a good offensive mind at both the collegiate level and the professional level. He has shown he has the ability to work with and develop QBs at both the pro and collegiate level. He is a major upgrade and is homerun hire for LSU.

Our nemesis, Alabama, doesn't run the spread and they have won 3 of the last 4 NCs.

Because he is the only one willing to work for Miles since he knows him...he is very conservative and old school...won't try that "colleage offense crap"...he'll keep it with the ground and pound and 8 yard curls

There's a huge thread, but
He has ties to Miles both were Grad Assisstants at Michigan
He runs a pro-style offense which is our MO. Why change our whole identity when we don't even have the talent to run a spread offense?
Cameron is only 50, he's not old.
And he has NFL experience as an offensive coordinator for 10 years and was even an NFL head coach and a college coach. The teams that he was a coordinator for have a 60% winning percentage in the NFL and have finished in the top half of the nfl every year besides his first.
He's the perfect fit.

CLM can't manage the offense
Krag can only do so much due to his illness
Stud is OL Coach and nothing more at the SEC level.

So are there any legs to this rumor or is it all Rant hype & hope?

He will be here barring some major development between now and the presser.

A) We don't run the spread offense
B) We don't need to run the spread offense to win
C) CC has 10+ years as an OC and was very successful at San Diego. He also played a role in developing Brees while there.

It'd be a huge upgrade for LSU seeing as how Stud is nothing more than a position coach.

He is perfect fit if LSU and CLM want to win 60% of their games. Check his overall record as a coach, its not much.

Miles wins 80% of his games or better with garbage as an OC. Bring in an OC who has been a head coach in the NFL and in college, an OC in the NFL for 10+ years, and a proven QB developer; and now we are gonna win a ton less???



eta: changed to 80% which is now accurate.
