LSU should be getting money back after losing to Troy.

This tells me that they’re keeping O and staff past this year.

Did you think the Administration would bail this quickly? Doing so would prove they made the wrong choice and they won't do that publicly.

I already told you that. It’s called a buyout clause. O isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. Ensminger is an asset to the program and probably should be calling the plays on offense. He did very well in that capacity last year, albeit with veteran leadership on the line. Still, congrats Steve!

A $12 million buyout tells me he’s staying. And $6 million next year. And when we’re back on top, everyone will say, “I told you that guy could coach.”

I don't think ANY coach should be getting raise right now.

It makes no sense. Wish we could have a clean house. No offense to Steve.

His contract ended in March. He was operating on a rollover year, so maybe there was a deadline to extend or cancel.

Ensminger doesn't deserve negative comments. He's an asset to this team.

Lose to Troy, get a raise. Makes sense.

Yea, it was all Ensminger's fault we loss. Seems to me we got at least one TE touchdown pass during the Troy game. You are a moron PortHudsonLooza

I'm not saying he didn't deserve the pay raise but the timing of this is incredibly bad.

Well that depends on when his contract was up... I guess

Tell me again how a TE coach lost us the game to Troy? This man seems to be a better play caller than our current OC. He deserved a raise.

Ensminger has been a solid asset as a coach and recruiter for the Tigers for his whole time here. Bleeds purple and gold without asking for any credit for what he did last year. Total team player! Great job Steve!

He’s solid but why now with so much uncertainty lol

Alleva attempt to create stability I guess. Fix the rift on the coaching staff ?? Will tbey make a move on Canada if offense struggles? That woudknt be smart but they are already in desperation mode 5 games in. Wow

It is what it is, and you do what you have to do.

Congrats to a great guy!

Seems weird to be paying a TE coach that much especially when LSU hasn't developed a decent TE in decades.
Reply12 months
This tells me O is firing Canada in a matter of weeks, maybe days.

Why the hell are we extending contracts? How stupid can this department actually get?
Reply12 months
We heard you the 3rd time. Remember last year when he came in to pinch hit as OC. This is his reward.
