BATON ROUGE, La. — As Tigers assistant Brian Polian opened up this spring’s LSU coaches clinic, he introduced each member of Brian Kelly’s new staff to the high school coaches in attendance. And as Polian went coach to coach, he smiled as he reached the new LSU quarterback coach: Joe Sloan.
“I like to call him ‘The Mayor,’” Polian joked, because Sloan knew everybody in town.

The comment got a laugh, but this is not just a bit. There’s a reason he was one of the two or three LSU assistants who showed up early to schmooze with high school coaches. There’s a reason watching him at LSU’s 7-on-7 camp last week was watching him go field to field charming top recruits with a grin on his face. There’s a reason he became Skip Holtz’s most trusted Louisiana Tech assistant and why this East Coast guy from Virginia has become one of the more well-known recruiters in the distinct world of Louisiana. It’s because Sloan knows how to relate. And he likes doing it.
“That’s Joe in a nutshell, man,” said Blake Baker, the former LSU linebackers coach who worked with Sloan for five years at Louisiana Tech. “I call him the politician. He’s always working some sort of angle. He’s always up to something. You never know with ol’ Joe.”



Why new LSU QB coach Joe Sloan could be the Tigers’ most important assistant

Hes primed to be our next OC, so of course Kelly will choose some one else.

I'd love to see a world where he's the OC for a few years, we win a natty, and he's hired after BK retires.

He might provide more value staying as QB coach since we're breaking in a new QB. As long as he is retained in some capacity I'm good with it

Most OCs are the QB coaches. If he's promoted to OC, he'll still be working with the QBs just as much, if not more. We will have to find a new TE coach, though. Or let them work with both Davis on their blocking and Hankton on their receiving, and save a spot for another coach. That will work itself out after the OC is named. There will be some coaches that leave, some that come in, and some duties being split. We could even hire a full-time ST coach this year.

Good grief. Could we not get that far ahead of ourselves?

You’re hoping for LA Techs former coordinator?

I think he’s hoping for the guy that just coached up the Heisman winner to one of the greatest seasons an offensive player has ever had in the NCAA

Maybe?

So good QB coach equals good offense coordinator?

Are you clairvoyant? Since you know the future and what BK is going to do about his future OC tell us how many games we will win next year and the scores Nostradamus.
