When was the last time LSU had a dedicated lb coach?
I’m excited about that going forward. Think it could really help upgrade that position.

Aranda churned out LB’s like crazy while at LSU. It doesn’t get much better than what he did as far as developing NFL LB’s.

Without looking, I assume Peveto before he was co-dc?

I'm still laughing hard at how when O took the job at LSU the first thing he did was shite can Miles 2 biggest BBQ buddies in Cam and Peveto.

Speaking of Cam, you have to credit O with canning his ass- he never found another coaching job, which shows how unliked he was!

We literally had the Butkus award winner without a dedicated LB coach. But yeah that's what we need to "upgrade" the position.

No one was complaining about LB play when Peveto was the LB coach. Of course, no one was complaining about Pelini either. Guess times change.

I was thinking about this the other day....

Firstly, you are right. Aranda's record on LB development is top-tier. So there's that.

Secondly, Aranda didn't have to start at the bottom. After Chief leaves, Welter gets replaced with Beckwith and then our LBs have shown out (and played in the NFL I might add) ever since.

2020 rolls around, with many factors to consider, and the overall LB squad play sucks again.

So it was the removal of Chavis and then BDP that created the revival of the LB position at LSU. Aranda then elevated it another level.

How goes the LBs go is how goes the rush defense goes:

2020 - 4.9 ypc
Aranda '19 - 16 - 3.7, 3.9, 3.9, 3.3 ypc
2015 (Steele) - 3.8
2014 (Chavis) - 4.3 ypc

[for reference anything over 4.0 ypc is going to easily be over 140 yds rushing]

To answer the OPs question- the last time we had a LBs coach that wasn't the DC, technically, was under Steele/Chavis... Bradley Dale Peveto. Under Steele he was all LBs; under Chavis it was OLBs only. Under Pelini BDP was the prior dedicated LBs coach in 2007.

I don’t understand what this means. We had to recruit and replace linebackers virtually every year. I think at one point we had more kickers than linebackers on the roster.

You kinda yada yada’d through a lot of stuff there when you say ‘Beckwith replaced Welter and linebackers have been great ever since’. That was like seven years ago.

Beckwith took over for Welter while Chief was still here. Also, we were putting LBs in he NFL while Chief was here, most notably Shepp, Minter and Kwon. Barrow got drafted and played a couple years as well, and you could mention Riley and Cutrera too but they only played their senior seasons under Chief (though those were their best seasons by far).

We look to have done better with recruiting LBs in the post Chavis era though, hopefully the trend continues.
