UPDATE: LSU has hired Blake Baker as LB coach.

LSU is expected to hire Miami Hurricanes defensive coordinator Blake Baker to coach the linebackers, according to Ross Dellenger.

Baker is from Houston, TX, and played football at Tulane. He joined Manny Diaz's staff at Miami last January but reportedly lost defensive play-calling duties recently after Diaz made several new changes to the staff.

The LSU Linebackers were coached by former defensive coordinator Bo Pelini in 2020. Ed Orgeron will now turn his sights on a new defensive line coach to replace Bill Johnson who retired this offseason.

That's a damn good hire especially considering the coaching carousel going on right now within the conference.

Miami has fans? No one goes to the games, unless they are winning. Miami is a front running town.
