LSU has officially announced the hire of new defensive line coach Bill Johnson on Saturday.

Johnson will take over for Dennis Johnson who is unable to coach this season due to recent knee injuries that requires him to be in a wheelchair. Per

BATON ROUGE – Bill Johnson, a pro football coaching veteran that coached the NFL Defensive Player of the Year in both 2017 and 2018, has been named the defensive line coach at LSU, head coach Ed Orgeron announced.

Johnson fills in for Dennis Johnson, who suffered severe injuries to both of his knees over the summer that requires him to be a wheelchair and unable to coach on the field. As a result, Johnson will spend the 2019 season as an analyst for the Tigers.

Johnson joins the LSU staff after serving as the defensive line coach for the Los Angeles Rams for the past two years where he helped the franchise reach the Super Bowl in February of 2019. Johnson’s NFL career spans 18 seasons with four organizations – Rams (2017-18), Saints (2009-16), Broncos (2007-08) and Falcons (2001-06).

Decent pedigree. He will have not the most athletic DL for LSU but they are talented. He doesn’t have much time to mold them. I look forward to seeing what he can produce.

As an aside, LSU basketball showed some good scoring balance today. They had six players scoring in double figures in their exhibition win today.
