  1. Arizona State OL Coach Rob Sale will join Billy Napier’s staff in Lafayette. Rob is a former LSU Tiger, some might remember.
  2. Made a call to a friend today, haven't heard back.
  3. Never burn your bridges in this profession. Grimes did well.
  4. Do a little research on the Tenn OL Coach, think they gonna sign with us.
  5. Ok, LSU has 3 kids that transferred in, sat out this season, they will count on the 85 limit. Since some JC kids will get in for Spring, they too will be counted back and add to the 85 limit. Word I got, 2 of the 3 JC kids will be in for Spring, one still has a little classroom work to do. But should be good to go in the Fall. O and the staff have really done a great job with this class. Got some word we may have a Sr Grad, RB that may end up at LSU, and can play this season. Haven't made a call lately, but that's one guy that could help right away. Will keep y'all up to date, been down in Pierre Part, don't get much info down here. I'm supposed to fly out Sunday Evening, a little vacation out East. Be gone for a week or so. Talking about two trips in the next couple weeks down to the Rio Grande Valley. Then I got Christmas and New Years. A busy time.
  6. OL want to get into the NFL, we have had a problem there. Grimes did a way better job. Over the years, LSU has had some very good coaches on the OL. We lost a little with Les, at times the HC being a former position coach, can hinder the position coach on a team. We have had some really good coaches on the OL, Studs was an ok coach, below average recruiter. Cregg has done well, years in the Pros, Super Bowl Ring. He can go into a kids house, have that ring on his finger, talk about what it takes to get into the Pros, he has played the position. Coached it from the East coast to the West coast (Coached at Tenn and USC, with Coach O). Coached in the NFL with the Raiders, Broncos and Chargers. Coached the OL's for P. Manning and Rivers. That's a great resume. I often talk about how a Head Coach has a list of names, just incase a coach leaves, this is one, O knew who he wanted, went got him. Grimes was OL/RGC at LSU, didn't look, but guess has was in the $450-500k range. That is great money. After the early signing period, look for some schools to have coaches move on. Something tells me, Grimes gave O notice, O made the call early. Things moved quickly. Smooth transition.
  7. From T-Bob Hebert: Talked to Joe Barksdale about James Cregg since he's played for him in San Diego and Joe said "He's a great coach. One of the best I've ever had. I think he's gonna end up being a great hiring decision." #LSU
  8. Coach Cregg coached Former Tiger Joe Barksdale, while at the Chargers. A little more... Cregg is currently the OL coach at Louisiana State University. Previously he was the assistant offensive linecoach for the Los Angeles Chargers. He served at the same position at the University of Tennessee and University of Southern California. Prior to that, he was an assistant coach with the National Football League Oakland Raiders. Prior to that he was an assistant coach at the University of Idaho and Colgate University. On February 7, 2016, Cregg was part of the Broncos coaching staff that won Super Bowl 50. In the game, the Broncos defeated the Carolina Panthersby a score of 24–10.[1]
  9. A little more... With Jeff Grimes Leaving LSU for BYU, Tigers to Hire Chargers' James Cregg as Offensive Line Coach ASSOCIATED PRESS BRUCE FELDMAN Thursday December 14th, 2017 Veteran offensive line coach Jeff Grimes is leaving LSU to become the new offensive coordinator at BYU, sources tell SI. The Tigers plan on hiring James Cregg from the Los Angeles Chargers as their new offensive line coach, according to a source. Before getting hired by the Chargers, Cregg spent three years with the Broncos (2014); Denver’s offensive line featured new starters at all five positions. Despite the changes, the Broncos allowed the fewest sacks in the NFL (17) and ranked fourth in the NFL in total offense (402.9 ypg). Tackle Ryan Clady earned his fourth-career Pro Bowl nod. The Broncos won Super Bowl 50 in Cregg’s second season in Denver. Cregg worked together with LSU head coach Ed Orgeron during stops at Tennessee and USC. Cregg helped develop future first-rounders Tyron Smith and Matt Kalil with the Trojans. Grimes replaces Ty Detmer who was let go after two seasons as BYU’s OC. The Cougars ranked No. 120 in offense this season.
  10. Great pickup for them, I've always liked Grimes.
  11. Yep, he's from Tenn, been great for the Tigers, best of luck to him.
  12. Janzen Jackson was a Clown, a problem child. I often talk about the ones you are kind of happy they sign somewhere else, case in point.
  13. LSU has somewhere around 20 verbals, they are expecting most, if not all to sign. During this period. Talking with a few friends, looks like the Bayou Bash is a thing of the past. Instead, a sit down meal, with a full breakdown of each player. This is what they are looking at now. Will keep y'all up to date.
