Miles to introduce Cameron on Friday
By Chris Low
LSU coach Les Miles will make it official Friday when he introduces Cam Cameron as the Tigers' new offensive coordinator during a noon ET press conference.
Michael Bonnette, LSU's associate athletic director for sports information, said Thursday night that Miles had notified his players that Cameron was taking over and that Greg Studrawa would stay on as offensive line coach. Studrawa had called plays the last two seasons after stepping in for Steve Kragthorpe, who was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease months after being hired as offensive coordinator in 2011. Kragthorpe served as the Tigers' quarterbacks coach the last two seasons.
Cameron, 52, comes to LSU after serving as the Baltimore Ravens' offensive coordinator from 2008-12. He was fired by Ravens coach John Harbaugh this past season after a loss to the Washington Redskins in Week 14. Cameron and Miles go back to their days on the Michigan staff together from 1987-93.
The Tigers finished 10th in the SEC this past season in total offense and eighth in scoring defense. They were held to 20 or fewer points in four of their eight league games.
