Ensminger introduced as LSU offensive coordinator

LSU head coach Ed Orgeron introduced his new offensive coordinator today, Steve Ensminger. Ensminger is an old face around Tigers, having been with the team since 2011, and having captained LSU to three bowl games in the late 70s at quarterback. Ensminger got choked up as he was introduced…

“Great moments are born from great opportunities. This is my opportunity, I embrace it, I look forward to it, and I promise we’ll make this state proud.”

LSU’s motion offense was sluggish at times under former coordinator Matt Canada, and has ranked in the middle of the pack in the SEC over the last few years. Ensminger says he plans on running a fast paced, spread offense…

“We have to put three and four WRs on the field, we have to be a more fast ball team, I think we have to go no huddle. That’s the direction we are going and I think we have to put the best talent on the field and I think that will be three and four wideouts.”

The move was controversial, as the team went from a nationally respected offensive mind in Matt Canada, to Ensminger, who’s been coaching the team’s tight ends. Ensminger says he doesn’t let the chatter get to him…

“I had a guy call me last night and said did you read this in the paper, I said hell no I haven’t read the paper in 20 years. I don’t read the damn paper, I don’t go on twitter I don’t go on Facebook. I can let any outside influence say hey you’re not good enough and you can’t do this, bullshit, ok, I’ll do it.”

Ensminger was LSU’s interm offensive coordinator in 2016. His offense averaged 32 points a game.
