Linehan, the former head coach of the St. Louis Rams, was officially named by LSU head coach Ed Orgeron on Tuesday.
Linehan will work alongside offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Steve Ensminger.
“Scott brings a wealth of knowledge to our offense,” Orgeron said in a press release. “We wanted to bring in someone who will expand our passing game and with Scott’s experience as an NFL head coach and offensive coordinator we feel this is the best move for our offense. After talking to numerous people with NFL experience and interviewing Scott we knew he was the right fit for the LSU Tigers.”
