He went to UGA as a special teams coach and took a medical leave of absence before the season started. Not sure if they ever disclosed the medical issue.

I know he was gone for "mental health issues and wellness" but he did return in October. Maybe coming back home would give him some stability. He likely won't assume the role of Special Teams coordinator after this year, so offering him a fresh start in familiar surroundings could help him and LSU both.

He has a nice retirement package to look at

Moffit was past his prime a decade ago.

I'd really like to see Moffitt at Arkansas working with Pittman's OL recruits. Maybe Pittman adds him to work along side Jamil Walker who he brought in from Georgia and was an Asst S & C coach at Wisconsin.

Don't know if Moffett was completely to blame for the injury situation, the reported soft practices probably played a contributing factor as well, but a change was needed with a new regime.

Are we basing this off of linemen performance only? Maybe if we recruited better this wouldn’t be that big of a problem

Go get Scott Cochran formerly with Bama and Georgia if he wants to be a S+C coach again. Local boy may want to come home

Scott would be grand slam. Looks at those UGA baws.

Our players seem to be injury prone at a high rate. Offensive line needs better strength & conditioning for sure. Moffitt is to be thanked for his devoted years, but loyalty to a job does not warrant a lifetime job.

This is the best move for the program and makes me really buy into what BK is going to do. He’s completely changing LSU’s culture and he’s starting with refocusing discipline.

Don't want to hear anybody talking crap should Tommy join Saban or Fisher. You didn't want him here any longer so he can take his talents to anywhere of his choosing.

Exactly what results at LSU in the last 2 years in the Strength & Conditioning Program by Moffit is impressive to you?

Moffit has been great for the program but the teams over the last couple of years have shown an apparent deficit in strength and conditioning. Of course, as fans observing from the outside we don’t have a complete understanding of the full involvement of the S&C coaches in this trend. However, I am on board with giving the new coach a free hand in making adjustments as he deems necessary. Thanks to Coach Moffit and welcome to the new coach.

Think this might be a hint about coaches from ND coming to LSU after the Playoffs are set. Someone in another thread point out that coaches might come after ND is out. I tend yo agree.

ND coaches are getting more money and like the new HC. Don't have to uproot families and realize what a different world Red Stick is from South Bend. Makes perfect sense.

Fairhope….have you heard of a fella named Scott Woodward? You think that man will let money make the difference in getting who Kelly wants? They ain’t staying because they would get more money dumb dumb…they would stay because that’s where they want to be.
