LSU has added two assistants to the coaching staff this week as Ryan Pugh has been hired as a graduate assistant and former ULL quarterback Blaine Gautier has been hired as an offensive assistant. Per

Pugh was a graduate assistant at Auburn in 2012, Virginia Tech in 2013 and Cincinnati this past year. From 2007-2010, Pugh started at center for Auburn, becoming a finalist for the Remington Award, which is given to the nation's top center, in 2010, when he earned third-team All-American honors by the Associated Press. He is a native of Hoover, Ala., and has already joined the LSU staff. Pugh played under LSU offensive line coach Jeff Grimes for two years at Auburn.

Gautier will fill the vacated role of Sean Patterson Jr. as an offensive assistant. He will be responsible for assisting in film breakdown, practice and game analysis. Gautier has also developed relationships with many of Louisiana's youth, so there should be an added bonus that he brings to the staff on the recruiting trail. He is expected to start his new job on Thursday. Gautier most recently served as the St. James quarterback coach, where he tutored 2017 standout QB prospect Lowell Narcisse.
Gautier is a native of Edgard, La. (Lutcher HS) and had a record-breaking career as a quarterback at ULL from 2009-2011.
