As we reported earlier this week, there was a chance that LSU defensive analyst Dennis Johnson could be joining Baylor's staff as Dave Aranda's new defensive line coach.

That report became a reality on Friday evening when multiple sources confirmed that Johnson has officially arrived in Waco.


Johnson becomes the second LSU assistant to join Baylor's staff this week as offensive analyst Jorge Munoz is also headed to Waco as the Bears' new wide receiver coach.

Johnson played at LSU from 2009-11 and became a grad assistant working with the Tigers' defensive line from 2014-2015.

He was promoted to outside linebacker coach in 2016 and was named defensive line coach in 2019 but was unable to coach after suffering a double knee injury during fall camp last year.

Ed Orgeron hired longtime NFL defensive line coach Bill Johnson to take over the DL coaching duties while Dennis was out this past season.

Coach Aranda is making the right decisions. I wish him the best unless he faces us.

National Championship winning programs are going to lose personnel to promotions its inevitable but I will say Clemson has pretty much retained most all their coaches and analysts some how.

Sad that we are losing so many coaches BUT the new Defensive Coordinator is going to want to bring in his own guys so who knows if they would of had a job if they stayed anyway !

I am going to say this. I truly have my doubts about Aranda being successful at Baylor. In all fairness, he needs better talent than he is inheriting to run his style of defense at Baylor. He is a Defensive Coach in an offense oriented league and in all fairness the coaches he is bringing in for the most part are "advisors" at LSU. His personality also just seems too reserved to get out and recruit head to head against the Tom Herman, Gary Patterson, Lincoln Riley, and Jimbo Fisher types in his backyard. LSU is going to be all over Aranda as well. Like I said I have my doubts.

So is the picture how coach o feels about it?

Kinda a chicken shite move to pull coaches from the school you just came from. I remember watching that Saban and Belicheck hbo show and this is what pissed Saban off the most about his assistants getting head coaching positions and taking his assistants.

It happens in other areas too. When some LSU administrators (not sports) got jobs with other schools, they also took some of their able/favorite assistants with promotions. I have seen them happen in university administration, finance, and IT. It could be happening in other areas too. Nothing strange here.

We'll be fine, but yeah, Baylor starting to be a pimple on our ass. Time to send a message, like throwing a ton of money at Kramer's mom, their NC WBB Coach! LOL

I am happy for Aranda having control of his own program, but enough is enough already!

LSU needs to lock down who they want or they are sitting ducks. Have not seen any action from LSU side...

Will all the losses I would rather have Bill Johnson and his experience coaching next season. Dennis Johnson can be replaced.

C'mon Coach O, get on the Twitter machine and send some updates. Our impatience and anxiety should be your higher priority, not recruiting or interviewing. Remember how the Canada hire worked out, because you wanted to make a splash and give us what we wanted.

Ok. Now Dave is starting to really piss me off.
Reply30 days
Wait! the fact that our defense was average at best this past year didn't already piss you off prior to this. Somebody tell Dave don't let the door hit you where the good Lord split you

WTF....now i hear Aranda is trying to get our biggest recruit of 2021, 5 star LB raesjon davis to de-commit from LSU so he can commit to Baylor.....This is ridiculous....someone needs to check aranda yesterday....this kind of poaching of coaches and recruits should be a violation of NCAA rules or somethin....if that doesnt work lsu fans should threaten him or let him know this is not acceptable cuz it is just completely disrespectful to coach O and the university and every true LSU fan

Threaten him? You can’t possibly be serious, you lunatic.

I agree with keitron. It seems as though Dave is trying to stock pile his staff/roster by depleting ours. Not cool bro. You're in Texas now not Louisiana. You're in the Big 12 now, not the SEC. You moved on from our program.... good for you. In the meantime, leave our coaches/committed recruits alone.

“You're in Texas now not Louisiana. You're in the Big 12 now, not the SEC.” I don’t follow what this has to do with anything

I'm sure Bo is going to want to bring in some of his own people.

Bo's a schmo...there's a reason he was shown door before he took HC job in nebraska. slightly above average DC coordinator. We want the best....nothing but the best for LSU understand....

If I recall correctly, Pelini’s last 3 defenses for LSU were top 5 in the country. He was hired by Nebraska when he was still our DC.

LSU players think highly of Bo Pellini. But, that fourth down against Arkansas still bothers me. Without that conversion, we didn't have to grovel that we were undefeated in regulation with the voters. 2019 season has erased my feelings about 2012 natty, I can ignore some foibles too.
