BATON ROUGE -- After the Tigers first practice session of the 2011 preseason, LSU head coach Les Miles announced Thursday that Steve Kragthorpe was stepping aside from his duties as offensive coordinator due to Parkinson's disease. Kragthorpe will remain on the staff as the quarterbacks coach.

LSU offensive line coach Greg Studrawa will assume the role of offensive coordinator.
