BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - LSU head coach Ed Orgeron made himself available Tuesday morning to answer questions on 104.5 ESPN Radio and talked about many topics, including the open coordinator jobs for the Tigers.

Offensively, Orgeron said he wants to get back to the offense LSU ran in 2019, much of it credited to the expertise of passing game coordinator Joe Brady, now the offensive coordinator with the Carolina Panthers.

Two guys who currently work with Brady, quarterback coach Jake Peetz and offensive assistant DJ Mangas, both visited Baton Rouge on Tuesday for interviews. Mangas is familiar with the Tigers. He served on the LSU 2019 National Championship team as an analyst under Brady.
