What about Ensninger?
I know he’s a little older but clearly he’s a worker. Brady is the one getting all the attention but E calls the plays. He’s got a heck of a resume so should he be getting a look by somebody? I mean, if Louisiana loses Napier, should they call Ensminger?

re: What about Ensninger?
He's run a lot of offenses in the past and they haven't been very good.

Not trying to be disrespectful on a night like tonight but this offense was mostly because of Brady. That's why he won the Broyles Award and he's about to get some NFL offers.

E isn't leaving LSU to go coach somewhere else.

I do wonder if he will retire soon, though.

re: What about Ensninger?
Steve isn’t leaving LSU for anywhere else, but after his family tragedy and winning a title, I wouldn’t be surprised if he at least thought about retiring, or at least moving off-field with fewer hours and demands. I don’t think anyone could blame him and if he does step away, we should thank him for all he’s done for his alma mater.

I could see Ensminger taking over for Coach Baglio in the football office

That's not true at all. As most of the coaches he worked for loved him and a ton of the people that previously worked with him through the years also say he is an offensive genius. Not to mention that Dave Aranda says he picked Ensminger out immediately upon arrival as the smartest coach on Les Miles' staff. You obviously don't have a freaking clue.

Brady brought his offense. However, what went into LSU's offense went into it at the approval of Steve Ensminger. If Ensminger didn't like it or want it, it didn't get in. Only if it met with Ensminger's approval did it go in.

Furthermore, Ensminger has always been the primary playcaller with Brady only calling the plays from the 12-yard-line to the goal line in the red zone and some third and fourth down and short plays.

The loss of Brady will not slow down the LSU offense. Although Myles Brennan, as opposed to Joe Burrow, may a little. Of course, it may harm recruiting a little cause of perception. Nonetheless, in a few months, it will be old news.

Meanwhile, according to Joe Brady himself and Joe Burrow, Steve Ensminger deserved the Broyles Award more than than Brady.

Ensminger isn't a bad OC, his offense just wasn't cool enough for today's fans. He did a great job of running a pro style offense, they just didn't have pro style personnel.

LSU could do a lot worse.

He wasn’t bad. Hell, he was a big upgrade over Cam Cameron in 2016. However, he never scored a single point vs Bama in two home games on his own. He does have real limitations and that can’t be ignored.

That said, his work with Brady this year in this new system shows that, with the right support, he can be very effective.

Ok, so why aren't any NFL teams trying to hire him to run an offense?

To be fair, Bamas defense was better the last two years than this year, but I get your point.

Well the sign of a good OC is adapting to your personnel, and keep up with the times.

No one's saying that he doesn't know his system well, but is he well versed in modern offensive concepts? Obviously no, that's why we brought Brady in.
