Does Coach "O" Interfere with Ensmingers Play Calling
Hello Tigers. I know in the past coach O has said he will not interfere in the offensive play calling of his OC. He did with Canada. Do you think he holds to his word with Ensminger at the helm, and lets it fly...

Of course he will. It’s why he hired him. When O tried to interfere with Canada, that’s when fights broke out because Canada was told he’d have full autonomy.

This is ridiculous dude. Posters should have to serve an auto 10 day ban for starring shite threads like this. I mean those that start negative, AND those that troll positive.

Of course they do, and should. It is just like any business. Boss has final say. These are just shite stirrers, at least I hope they aren't that stupid.

Get a hold of yourself. The question may make you angry but I think it's a reasonable one to ask, especially in the void that is the offseason. It's well documented that O, someone with no offensive background, interfered with offensive coaches at Ole Miss and with Canada's offense last year.

I for one think that he is likely far more comfortable with Ensminger than previous coaches so he will likely let him do his thing, for better or worse.

I hope he doesn’t. He needs to let ensminger do his thing. If he does interfere it will be his downfall

you are the last one that should be calling for bannings. All you do is troll and degrade posters. If anyone should be banned look in the mirror

Simple answer : We don’t know.

Has he in the past? Yes.

O realized after the first game last year that he made a huge mistake hiring Canada I truly believed. We should have hung 50 on them. I think at that point he was looking for a way to get rid of Canada. After the game my son and I both said we were in deep shite with this offense. I think that's why he interfered and wanted a different offense but it was too late. He knew Canada was gone. I still think Steve E would have hung 50 on BYU and I think we will be pleasantly surprised this year with the offense. Good riddance of Canada.

Yes. Obviously. He couldn’t get along with Canada and Einsminger was a comfort hire.

Literally no one can argue that.

He will interfere to ask the definition of the big words Ensminger is using.

why would you say that? Its a good question. O did say he would let Canada run the offense well he didn't. It's a good question on whether he trust ensminger to run the offense himself

re: Does Coach "O" Interfere with Ensmingers Play Calling
In 2016 on into 2017 O was in full politic mode doing and saying whatever he needed to say to appease the fans, donors, etc. I think he was/is well aware LSU was the ONLY power conf. school that was going to give him as shot as HC and if he loses this job, it will be his LAST as a D-1 HC.

The first order of business when he got the job was to do exactly what Miles wouldn't do...fix the offense. Unfortunately, his plan hit a snag with Kiffin didn't come to LSU and he had to do something to appease the masses. That something was hiring "the best OC" he could...even though he knew very little about Canada. That wasn't a "this is the guy I really want" hire. It was a "I've got to cover my ass" hire and bring in a big name to justify giving me the job in the first place.

Once LSU got their arse kicked physically by Miss. St., O realized the honeymoon for him was very much over and he wasn't going to let a guy he didn't know (Canada) ruin his last shot as a HC. He was going back to what he knew, meathead football, because he felt Canada's "fineness" was the reason LSU got it's arse kicked by State. That then led to the Troy debacle

For better or worse, I think O trusts Ensminger. He trusts that Ensminger is going to implement an offense that O understands (to the extent he understands offensive football). Canada's offense with its motion and shifting was something that likely offended O's core football value of toughness and physicality.

He may "interfere" to the extent that he will question things that don't seem to be working (which honestly is his right and job to do as HC). But I don't think he is going to demand a philosophical shift from Ensminger if things aren't going well because I suspect Ensminger will be running the style of offense O agrees with.

No it's a legitimate question. He's interfered with previous offensive coaches to his teams' detriment. I personally don't think he'll really "interfere" with Ensminger, or certainly not to the extent he screwed with offensive coaches at Ole Miss or Canada last year.
