BATON ROUGE, La (NBC33) - Just a week after Gary Crowton resigned as offensive coordinator, LSU hired his replacement. Les Miles announced Thursday that Steve Kragthorpe will be the new offensive coordinator. Kragthorpe spent seven years as the head coach at Tulsa and Louisville. In those years as a head coach he was 44-43.
Kragthorpe will also serve as the Tigers' quarterbacks coach as well.
“Steve brings to our staff the type of experience necessary to develop quarterbacks,” Les Miles said. “He’s an experienced play-caller who will bring a great deal of enthusiasm and energy to the staff. Steve will come in and build on what we’ve been able to accomplish on offense in the past. We think he’s a great addition, and we’re excited about bringing Steve and his family to Baton Rouge.”
