LSU to introduce Cameron as new O.C. Friday
BATON ROUGE - LSU spokesman Michael Bonnette says LSU head coach Les Miles will introduce Cam Cameron as the Tigers' new offensive coordinator on Friday.
Miles has already notified his players that Cameron will be taking over for Greg Studrawa, who remains as offensive line coach.
Studrawa took over as offensive coordinator unexpectedly in 2011 when Steve Kragthorpe, who'd been hired for the job months earlier, announced he had Parkinson's disease and would only serve as quarterbacks coach.
Cameron comes to LSU after serving as the Baltimore Ravens' offensive coordinator from 2008-2012. He was fired late in this past regular season, missing out on the Ravens' Super Bowl run.
Last season, LSU ranked 11th in the 14-team Southeastern Conference in passing, averaging 200.5 yards per game.
