LSU lost to Notre Dame 31-28 on Tuesday in the Music City Bowl and it's also possible they are losing their very successful defensive coordinator. Reports indicate that John Chavis will leave LSU for the same job at Texas A&M. Chavis spoke with reporters after the game, but didn't want to talk about his future.
"I've said three or four times, and I wasn't going to talk about that, and I wanna be nice, but at some point I can be an ugly ass, and I don't wanna be that tonight, so I'm not going to be that, okay," Chavis said.
During the post-game press conference, Coach Les Miles spoke about Chavis in the past tense.
"John Chavis was very productive for us, he's had a great career for LSU," Miles said.
Chavis made one-point-three million dollars this past season, and LSU has offered him a new contract. But it's been reported the Aggies are willing to give "Chief" a 400-thousand dollar raise. Miles was asked about losing Chavis to an SEC West rival.
"I don't know how it looks to be honest with you, nor do I give a damn," Miles said. "I can only tell you that at LSU we'll have a great defense, we'll have a great defensive coordinator, we'll play like hell."
