LSU announced the hire of Greg McMahon on Friday who will serve as the Tigers new special team coordinator.

The longtime New Orleans Saints special team coordinator joined LSU's staff last season as a special team analyst. Per LSUSports.net:
quote:

The addition of McMahon gives the LSU coaching staff a combined 65 years of NFL experience.

“Coach McMahon brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise in the area of special teams to our staff,” Orgeron said. “He’s had success at the highest level of football, helping the Saints win a Super Bowl, and I know that with Greg working daily with our special teams, we will show marked improvement.”

McMahon spent the 2017 season as analyst for the Tigers.

“It’s an honor to work at LSU and it’s an honor to be part of Coach Orgeron’s staff,” McMahon said. “This is one of the top programs in the country and I can’t wait to get started.”

Anyone supporting this hire obviously never watched a Saints ST unit with this guy at the helm. Fans rejoiced when he was fired after leading a bottom of the pack unit for the majority of his career. Another Special Ed move but I’ll call it great so I can be a “true fan”.

I never watch the Saints, because I am only a fan of Louisiana's football team, LSU! The Saints are NOLA's team.

According to football outsiders: NO STs finished in the top 15 In the league twice under this guy. The best finish was 11th. The other years his highest ranking was 21.

S Payton finally fires the guy after years of poor special teams and of course O hires him

Anytime you can flash a Super Bowl ring at aspiring 18 to 22 year old football recruits, you’ve got their attention! Hopefully, it will work out.

Why all the old farts?
Reply9 days
Cause he can't land the young farts so gotta get the old farts. That's why : ) any other questions or concerns I got an answer for that too. Tell orgeron to offer a scholly to Paul Tyson QB ( Paul bear bryant's great grand son) talented young farts that can possibly win a championship and guide an offense.

he got lucky 1 year and people think he was some sort of genius because the "stat sheet" shows he was on the super bowl team. they didnt have good special teams that year, they were so terrible it was the main reason payton tried the onside kick because we were giving up so much return yards its wasnt all that bad of a gamble. the way people alter history in their minds to fit something on a stat sheet is amazing. the saints special teams were bad the whole time he was there and it was a ragging dumpster fire when he was finally fired. "maybe" on a college level his "average" ST coaching ability will work here but last year showed no improvement at all so im not holding my breathe on this one. taking a flier on a rant amateur high school ST coach with potential would be a better move IMHO

Wait, you're telling me a poor special teams coach lasted 10-11 years in the NFL coaching special teams?

Terrible hire. He cannot recruit and he does not know how to properly coach special teams. Not very surprised coming from O though. There are some dark, dark times ahead .

LSU continues it's new status as a destination for cast offs and misfit coaches If you're a coach with no other job prospects just give LSU a call (Aranda notwithstanding)

Crap : ( I like the ensminger hire much better than this guy. I like the idea of ensminger 100 times better than this guy. He was fired by the saints and he did Horrible for the saints his last 2 years. Still wish orgeron would have researched candidates for offensive coordinator, special teams coordinator. Can't he do his research a little bit some what before making a hire??????? And can Lsu* hire back austin Thomas? He is unemployed, he is not at Tennessee, that deal didn't go thru.
Reply9 days
No. He is too young and much too successful. Not qualified to be a coach at LSU.

I am becoming convinced that many of you object to Orgeron because he is a Cajun. Kinda becoming obvious as your type is critical no matter what he does. Your type bitched when you were convinced Aranda was leaving because of Orgeron. Then when Aranda turned down A&M stayed you give no credit to Orgeron or Aleva for doing what they had to do to keep him. You don't want to be pleased. So, you aren't. Pathetic.

Just for the record know that I am not that old..... Some of you young punks need to get up punch in the throat. A woman that much NFL tenure can surely help LSU. Maybe if we hired some jerk off pretty boy Kliff Kingsbury look alike you idiots would be happy
