Here's a candidate for OC @ LSU. He's a close personal friend of Les Miles and helped develop Drew Bress and Philip Rivers. Wiki page calls him "one of the winningest OC's in NFL history." He has the credibility to look Miles in the eye and do whats needed to run the offense effectively. Oh....and he's currently available to step in when Miles is ready.

It was and still is so very, very correctable. Sitting on the problem, denying the need, or hoping it will magically go away if we just recruit the right talent this time, is not solving it. We all know. We all know.
With a good offense, we, not Bama, might be looking at a three-peat.

And another year of what we've seen these last 5 years puts us one year deeper into the hole CLM or some coach will eventually have to help LSU climb out of. Why not start climbing now?
I say, it makes a big difference when the Defence thinks with the style of Offense they run will give the Team as a whole a better chance at winning than someone they may not trust will give them that edge. They also may pick up several more big time recruits with the hire if it is the right one. I am of the feeling the sooner the better, that way they can all plan sooner with the Offense they will run than later.
