LSU Names Steve Ensminger Their New Offensive Coordinator
The LSU Football Program has found their new offensive coordinator and they've hired from within. LSU has promoted tight ends coach, Steve Ensminger to take over as the offensive coordinator for the 2018 season.
Ensminger returns to a job in which he held for eight games in 2016 in the interim before returning to tight ends coach under newly hired OC Matt Canada this previous year.
LSU will hold a press conference Thursday at noon to address the promotion of Ensminger.
In the press release on Wednesday that detailed the promotion there was many praise for his ability to develop quarterbacks specifically.
You have to feel good for Ensminger, this is a guy who's worked his way up within his Alma mater. That's right, you who may have forgotten but he was the quarterback who lead the Tigers to three bowl game appearances in the late 1970's. LSU won one of those three bowl games, defeated the Demon Deacons of Wake Forrest 34-10 in the 1979 Tangerine Bowl.
He first arrived to the staff in 2010 and while he had the interim tag of offensive coordinator in 2016, him and Coach O went 6-2, his offense produced at least 35 points five times, and at least 500 yards in four of those five games.
