Rob Sale, who played at LSU and then served on Nick Saban’s coaching staff at Alabama, joined McNeese State as the Cowboys’ offensive line coach in February 2012.
The 34-year old coach is a native of Monroe, played high school football at Neville High and college ball at LSU where he was a three year starter in the offensive line.
Sale, who earned his degree from LSU in 2003, had served on the Alabama football staff for the past five years, being a member of two national championship teams (2009 and 2011). Among the positions he held with the football team were those of weight room assistant coach and offensive video analyst.
He had launched his coaching career in 2006 as the offensive line coach at Catholic High of Pointe Coupee and joined Alabama in 2007.
As a player at LSU, he played in 35 games with 25 starts, starting all 13 games in his senior year of 2002 at right offensive guard. As a junior he saw starting action at both center and guard when the Tigers won the SEC title and he played left guard as a sophomore, starting the final five regular season games as well as the Peach Bowl. In high school he was an all-state selection as both a junior and a senior at Neville.
Correct. No one will be hired at LSU as a position coach without proving it (coaching and recruiting) somewhere else first. Same thing was told to Ben Wilkerson.
those last 4 plays vs. Bama were just a comedy of errors. not just the OL either, Dickson blew a block on 1 play that just cause a chain reaction of bad stuff (La'el leaves his man to get Dickson's, Vadal doesn't pick up La'el's man, Dickson is just standing there defeated).
CLM is a bad coach because he hasn't had an O lineman go in the first round?
When the competition is having OL drafted in the 1st rd and you compete against them for recruits, it would be nice to say we're a good launching pad to the NFL for OL.
