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

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.

Your opinion is irrelevant.

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.

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

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!

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.”

This tells me O is firing Canada in a matter of weeks, maybe days.

Congrats to a great guy!

Congratulations to Steve! Last season would've really tanked had he not been willing to step into a "hot mess" and take over as OC. He showed his real dedication to LSU. And for those of you who want to gripe about Ensminger and his low profile or lackluster position of "TE Coach," don't forget he was also the main recruiter for Devin White.

If the players did have to seperate O and Canada, they have a way out of O. Ensminger is the clear choice for the talks like us crowd. In short, I really want to know if O threw a punch.

Seems weird to be paying a TE coach that much especially when LSU hasn't developed a decent TE in decades.

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
