LSU announces hiring of special teams coordinator Greg McMahon

Besides losing Etling, LSU will replace its top two rushers - Derrius Guice and Darrel Williams - and its top two receivers - DJ Chark and Russell Gage.

LSU promoted tight ends coach Steve Ensminger to offensive coordinator, the school announced.

In this week's episode of the Tiger Pride Podcast, co-hosts Mark Clements and Jerit Roser give their thoughts on the Ensminger promotion and tackle all the other postseason storylines across the nation, including Alabama winning yet another national title and which LSU juniors will be leaving early for the NFL Draft.

"Coach McMahon brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise in the area of special teams to our staff", Orgeron said in the release.

Ensminger is expected to work alongside LSU consultant and longtime National Football League receivers coach Jerry Sullivan, who is expected to be given a significant role in the offense.

He got choked up when he started to talk about playing quarterback in Tiger Stadium for Coach Charlie Mack.

"This is a job I worked my entire career for", Ensminger said.

When Ensminger took the reins of the offence four games into 2016, he said he was "hesitant". He specifically mentioned depth at the wide receiver position.

He even dropped an expletive at one point.

The 59-year-old Ensminger, a former LSU quarterback, has been on the Tigers' staff since 2010.

Orgeron added Ensminger is adaptable and a great game day play caller. His resume will say that LSU averaged 411 yards and 27 points per game while going 9-4 in 2017. He's also coached at Georgia, Texas A&M, Clemson, and Auburn having served as offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach at Texas A&M from 1994-1996 and in the same role at Clemson in 1997-98. 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.
