One of LSU football’s 2020 signees wasn’t bothered by the departure of passing game coordinator/wide receivers coach.

When 2020 LSU football signee Koy Moore inked his name to his National Letter of Intent in December, he was operating under the impression that passing game coordinator/wide receivers coach Joe Brady would be back in Baton Rouge the following season.

Brady, who received a lot of credit for the Tigers’ offensive explosion in 2020, moved on to the NFL after LSU beat Clemson in the national championship game.

The Tigers still haven’t hired a replacement for Brady (Ed Orgeron has repeatedly said he’s taking his time with the hire), which means the recently signed Moore has no idea who his position coach will be in 2020. It also means the coach who helped wide receivers Ja’Marr Chase and Justin Jefferson achieve historically great seasons won’t be around to coach Moore next season.

But Moore isn’t bothered by Brady’s departure. In fact, he recently told that he wasn’t even thinking about Brady leaving, mostly because offensive coordinator Steve Ensminger called most of the plays anyway.

Moore added “Steve knows (the offense) more than anybody….he slept in that office four days a week”.

This lines up with what Coach O said last week when he noted that Ensminger was “the MVP of the whole deal”.

It sounds like Orgeron has the complete trust of the players he signed. They don’t think LSU’s incredible offensive success was simply because of Brady — they believe it was because of the program that Orgeron’s built.

That’s how you know Coach O has created something special in Baton Rouge. There are plenty of folks who likely think LSU’s 2019 championship was an aberration.

I guess they’re going to be pretty surprised when the Tigers don’t experience a rapid decline in 2020.
