LSU hiring Chargers assistant coach James Cregg for offensive line

LSU hiring Chargers assistant coach James Cregg for offensive line

Grimes would take over for former Heisman Trophy victor Ty Detmer, who ran BYU's offense for the past two seasons but was relieved of his duties after a historically bad showing in 2017.

According to FootballScoop.com, LSU is expected to lose OL coach Jeff Grimes to BYU.

A report from The Advocate said LSU has been preparing for Grimes' move for several days and has already hired his replacement.

"LSU's offensive line has helped pave the way for three consecutive 1,000-yard rushers, including Leonard Fournette, who set the school's single-season mark with 1,853 yards and 22 touchdowns in 2015". Grimes is expected to coach the Tigers in the Citrus Bowl against Notre Dame January 1st. When BYU announced it was relieving Detmer of his OC duties on November 27, it said in a news release that all of its offensive coaches remained under contract.

That could bring change to BYU's quarterback, running back and wide receiver coaching spots, occupied in 2017 by Detmer, Reno Mahe and Ben Cahoon.




The program offered Grimes another contract boost this time around, but he wishes to be a coordinator, a source told The Advocate. The inaugural early signing period begins next Wednesday, and the Tigers have four offensive linemen committed, including the top-ranked junior college tackle in Badara Traore.

Grimes has had three of his players selected in the NFL Draft in his three-plus seasons at LSU, and seven have earned All-SEC honors.

Grimes, a Texas native, joined LSU after the 2013 season following a one-year stay at Virginia Tech and a four-year run at Auburn. Three have earned All-America citations.

He coached the Cougars' offensive line in 2004-06.
