LSU’S JERRY SULLIVAN ANNOUNCES RETIREMENT


BATON ROUGE – LSU senior offensive assistant and passing game coordinator Jerry Sullivan announced his retirement from football on Wednesday.

Sullivan, who spent seven years on the LSU coaching staff from 1984-90, joined Ed Orgeron’s staff as a consultant in 2017 and was then elevated to senior offensive assistant and passing game coordinator for the 2018 season.

One of the most respected wide receiver coaches in football, Sullivan spent 25 years in the NFL before coming back to LSU in 2017.

“Jerry had a great career, one that saw him develop, groom, mentor and train some of the best to ever play the wide receiver position at any level of football,” Orgeron said. “I can’t thank Jerry enough for the contributions he made to our program over the past two years.”

This guy has been trashed all year. But now, in his retirement blurb, all the negative comments are getting downvoted. Hilarious

Look all the sad eyes I get but this is a plus. We need a wr coach that brings strength in blocking downfield and opening up plays. Our WRs have played like pussys for 3 years

At first, I thought it said Senior Offensive Assistant passed away. I’m not wishing I’ll health, but the headline was not a shock the first way I read it.

He's looking pretty fit for someone his age. Maybe he decided to pursue some eligility?

Hope he ends up happy with his decision...who replaces him? Any favorites atm?

Good. Too many balls were dropped amongst long developing pass plays and lack of wr separation. May not fully be his fault, but facts are facts.

I hope he enjoys retirement. All I can think of is what position coach we actually need. Maybe a QB coach? Does any school need receivers AND TE coaches?
