LSU football head coach Ed Orgeron has a clear plan for his offense in 2021.

LSU football head coach Ed Orgeron isn’t planning to stray from what brought the Tigers success in 2019.

During an interview on Tuesday morning with 104.5 in Baton Rouge, Orgeron essentially confirmed that he plans to run Joe Brady’s offense in 2021.

Orgeron was asked whether or not he has spoken with Brady about potential LSU hires (something that was reported on Monday).

Coach O confirmed the report, telling 104.5 that he called Brady and said “Joe, who can run your offense? And he recommended me two guys, and they’re here with me today.”

Those two guys are Carolina Panthers quarterbacks coach Jake Peetz and Panthers offensive analyst DJ Mangas (two coaches who work very closely with Brady in Carolina).

LSU football will likely have a new offense coordinator within a week

Orgeron wanting to continue to use Brady’s offense isn’t a surprise — especially after it was reported on Monday that Peetz and Mangas will interview with LSU this week.

When Orgeron hired Scott Linehan last winter to replace Brady as LSU’s passing game coordinator, he said he was hoping the former Dallas Cowboys offensive coordinator would bring some new ideas to LSU.

Fresh ideas are a must in college football. Great offenses have to continue to evolve to stay great.

But it’s a great sign that Orgeron isn’t looking to reinvent the wheel with LSU’s offense, either.

Stick with what has worked, build on it, and hope that success continues to follow.

That’s the best approach Orgeron and the Tigers can take.

And based on Coach O’s words on Tuesday morning, it sounds like that will be the approach they take into the 2021 season.
