As expected, LSU announced that tight end coach Steve Ensminger has been named the offensive coordinator for Tigers, replacing Matt Canada who was let go last week.

Ensminger will formally introduced as new OC by head coach Ed Orgeron at a press conference at noon CT on Thursday. Per LSUSports.net:
quote:

Ensminger, widely regarded for his development of quarterbacks, spent the past eight years on the Tigers coaching staff from 2010-17. He served as offensive coordinator for the final eight games of the 2016 season when he called plays and directed an LSU offense that averaged 32 points and 465 total yards per game.

Ensminger elevated the Tigers offense into one of the top units in the Southeastern Conference over the final two months of 2016. LSU went 6-2 over the final eight games in 2016, scoring at least 35 points five times and topping the 500 yard mark on four occasions.

I don’t get the neg talk on Alleva when every sport is trending up... baseball, basketball (Alleva hired WW), football (solid recruit class comin, Aranda staying, a nice turnaround after Troy, a new OC who legit did a good job last year on the fly). Still big Q’s to see Fball team in fall, but let’s be patient and give these guys a chance

Thank God the basketball team is good and baseball is right around the corner to distract us from these clowns running our football program.

Starting the 2018 season with Miami in Arlington and playing Auburn in week three away makes a 2-2 start a real possibility. Will they show Coach O the door like they did Miles if that happens. MSU's new coach is no joke on offense, and Georgia is our other SEC East opponent this season and Bama looks as good as ever, so what kind of record are we really expecting?

The fan exhibiting delusional optimism will say, "We're LSU, we'll be a steady 9-3 as always." But I don't see that given the talent that's returning and the schedule. I hope I'm proven wrong but I don't see 8 wins on the schedule. Definitely going to be in the 7-5 or 6-6 or 5-7 range

I defentantly wouldn't consider 1 td in 2 games too very explosive, Fred Flintstone has made his bed I'm over it. Hang in there just one more year!! Hopefully

The thing about LSU football that bothers me the most, is that our former Coach keeps winning National Championships.Here's hoping that he is interested in the New York Giants job.

I kind of like having an ex quarterback as offensive coordinator. I will have to reserve further comments about his hire, after I see what he does.

Fire the LSU President, Athletic Director, and this second-rate dumb-ass coon-ass for totally destroying any chance LSU had to be a national contender.

Who in the Hell is responsible for LSU Athletics??? I will never contribute another dollar as long as this dumb-ass coon-ass is head coach.

Well, bye Felicia. I am sure the LSU Athletic department will somehow survive the catastrophe of you pulling your dollar from their budget.

LSU will never be a first rate National Championship contender as long as this dim-witted Good Old Boy Coon arse is "leading" LSU.

Wow. Our leadership is a joke. This offseason would be absolutely hilarious if it wasn't happening to us.

We all had a good laugh at Tennessee, now this, I'm sorry it's Ensminger who has to endure this.

Wow. This is painful. Alabama just won their 5th National Title in under 10 years and we just hired a DL coach to be HC and a TE coach to be OC coordinator.

The LSU board held O and Aleva responsible for Canada hire and is forcing them to live with their decision and no more money!!!
