Football Scoop is reporting that LSU is hiring analyst Mario Acitelli.

Acitelli has spent the last two years as the special team's coordinator and working with tackles and tight ends at FCS program Elon. He will replace Kyle Caskey who left last week to join the Jacksonville Jaguars staff.

Acitelli has a connection with LSU passing game coordinator DJ Mangas from when they worked together at William & Mary.

A former All-American player at Appalachian State, Acitelli also has Power 5 experience from a pair of stints on Mack Brown's staffs – for three years at Texas as a graduate assistant and in 2019 at North Carolina as an analyst. Acitelli's body of work also includes five years on staff at William & Mary, including time as the special teams coordinator.

Acitelli has a strong connection to new Tigers' quarterbacks coach DJ Mangas, as the two served several years together on staff at William & Mary.

This close to start of the season, hiring someone w ties to Mangas probably the best move to be made.

Tiger Ree's work here hopefully, as it can be quite offensive at times.
