Former LSU quarterback Brandon Harris is a top candidate to join the L.A. Rams coaching staff as an assistant quarterback coach, according to Anwar Richardson.

Harris was recently hired by Steve Sarkisian to be the Director of Recruiting at Texas. He was previously an offensive analyst and assistant running backs coach under Tom Herman.


Harris played at LSU from 2014-2016 and ended his playing career as a graduate transfer for North Carolina in 2017.

Brandon...failure under pressure translates from player to coach. I wouldn’t hire.

I’m assuming Inv he is working with the defensive backs since he spent so much time in college making them look good

As bad as he was here at times, that’s a pretty lame take. Not sure what part of “Assistant-QB Coach” you missed.

I guess it’s true. Those who can’t do wind up teaching.

Is he teaching how not to throw directly to your opponents. That game ending pass at Lambeau was brutal. Great experience I will never forget, but wish he could have won that game.

Another QB that was screwed over in his develop by playing under Les Miles... Good for him

Uh, bull shite. Brandon Harris was a terrible QB and was not an SEC talent. Go back and watch the Arkansas game where he had a receiver 5 yards behind the Defense and hit a DB in the back of his helmet. It was pathetic. Then when Harris transferred to UNC he was benched after being GIVEN the job by Larry Fedora. After 3 games Harris was replaced by a true Freshman. At LSU Harris was given far too much opportunity and failed on his own.

How’s he going to keep staring at the sideline if he’s actually on the sideline?

I remember when he was being recruited, the word was that anyone who spoke with him including recruiting gurus and coaches were amazed at why his grades were poor. Apparently his bullshiteting skills are definitely next level. That’s not a knock on the guy, just an observation at his apparent gift of gab. You can open a lot of doors in the real world that way. Hopefully he’s ready to work hard and accept the challenges like a pro.

Yeah, if you heard him an interview, he came across quite impressively.

I have to say I'm both surprised by and proud of him for this recent string of amazing success. I never would have seen this coming for Brandon Harris but I'm really happy for him. I hope he takes it if he feels ready for it.

The guy has a great personality and always appeared to have an outstanding attitude until right at the end of his time at LSU when things got a little ugly. I don’t really blame him for that though. I know he was very frustrated.

He was not an SEC WB and was given way too many starts and should have been pulled a year before he finally was pulled.

Always glad for LSU players becoming successful in whatever venture. He obviously had his struggles here but I hope he kills it! Wish he could have played under a Joe Brady.

Damn who would have predicted this career path? Good for him.

He was a very adroit student of the game. That was obvious back to his recruitment. He just couldn't consistently translate his football knowledge to on-the-field play. No surprise he has a lot of coaching potential.

I thought he'd coach football if he wasn't cut out for the NFL back when he was in high school. If you ever really listened to him he comes off as a very intelligent person.

I'd love to know what Harris will teach Stafford, lol.

Good for Brandon. It’s cool that even though it didn’t work out for him as a player he’s doing his thing and has a future in football. Wish him nothing but the best of luck
