Well … that escalated quickly.

Just yesterday, FootballScoup suddenly reported that LSU’s offensive line coach Jeff Grimes had accepted an offer to be BYU’s next offensive coordinator. Minutes later, a new report circulated the internet from Bruce Feldman and the Baton Rouge Advocate announcing that Orgeron had already found his replacement in James Cregg.

According to multiple reports, Orgeron had been preparing for Grimes’ departure for several days. Cregg, who is the assistant offensive line coach for the Los Angeles Chargers, won a Super Bowl with the Denver Broncos as an assistant. Cregg is a young mind who has a ton of experience.

We will know more about this situation as more information comes out.
