How many assistants/analysts can one college football program have....my goodness!!!! LSU football has to have one of the highest payrolls in all of college sports. Ed Orgeron is hiring everyone. By the way why would any team need two analyst for their special teams?

So goofy Ed O is hiring McMahon? Shocker. I hope LSU fans enjoy kicks being blocked and no return game.

Doubtful. Orgeron purposely took less so he could have more for the rest of his staff. Also, "shadow staff" is the latest trend in college football. I'm not sure where it started, but Alabama has been implementing one for several years, now. LSU is actually behind the 8-ball with this.

As of now, he isn't coaching. He's an analyst. These shadow staffs won't have much, if any, direct contact with players. Their main purpose is to breakdown film, look for trends and tells, etc.

As of now, LSU's coaching staff is full. So, McMahon or any other person can't be named as a position coach, unless the NCAA approves a 10th coaching position in April.

As critical as we've been about McMahon, Gannet's Glen Guilbeau didn't attack the hire in his article. He's very cynical (and mostly annoying) so I expected him to berate this move. Instead he built the article around the Gleason blocked field goal and "Ambush" onside kick. He only makes a brief mention of him "struggling" the last few seasons and was fired with four other coaches.
