LSU names Panthers' Peetz new offensive coordinator

LSU names Panthers' Peetz new offensive coordinator”

LSU said Wednesday that it had hired Carolina Panthers assistants Jake Peetz and DJ Mangas to run the team's offense.

In addition to Peetz, LSU also hired another member of the Panthers' staff as its passing game coordinator - DJ Mangas.

Orgeron's staff has undergone many changes since the conclusion of a disappointing 2020 campaign, with coordinators on both sides of the ball departing the program. Before that, he was the second-youngest offensive coordinator in Division I at William & Mary.

Peetz spent the 2020 season working with former LSU coordinator Joe Brady in Carolina. "Jake brings 10 years of National Football League experience with him to our staff".

Ensminger, 62, had been a Tigers assistant since 2010 and spent the past three seasons as offensive coordinator before announcing his retirement in December.

A native of O'Neill, Nebraska, Peetz worked as an assistant for the Oakland Raiders from 2015-2017, after spending one season with the Washington Football Team in 2014. Mangas previously was an offensive analyst with the Tigers in 2019.

Peetz, who has spent the last two years with the Carolina Panthers, was an offensive analyst for the Crimson Tide in 2013 and then again in 2018.

The hirings come on the heels of considerable turnover on Orgeron's staff after LSU finished the season 5-5 and elected to self-impose a one-year bowl ban because of findings in an NCAA probe into players or their families receiving improper benefits dating back before Orgeron took over as the permanent head coach after the 2016 season.

LSU is going back to the Joe Brady system to try to fix its ailing offense.
