LSU officially announced the hiring of new offensive line coach James Cregg on Tuesday.

Cregg, who is currently an assistant offensive line coach with the Los Angeles Chargers, will join the staff after the NFL season.

He will replace Jeff Grimes who is leaving LSU after the Citrus Bowl to be the new offensive coordinator at BYU. Per

“James is a great addition to our staff,” Orgeron said. “I worked with Coach Cregg at both Tennessee and Southern Cal so I know firsthand the type coach he is and how he serves as a mentor to his players. He’s an outstanding recruiter that is going to develop our players both on and off the field. He will be a tremendous person to have in our program.”

Cregg has six years of NFL coaching experience to go along with 15 years at the collegiate level. Cregg coached with Orgeron at Tennessee in 2009 and they served on the same staff a Southern Cal for four years from 2010-13.

Prior to joining the Chargers for the 2017 season, Cregg spent three years coaching the offensive line for the Broncos, where he helped Denver win Super Bowl 50 with a 24-10 victory over Carolina.
