Report: LSU assistant leaving to join Dave Aranda's staff at Baylor
LSU’s coaching staff has lost some key pieces this offseason, and it appears the Tigers are set to lose another one, too.
Per The Athletic’s Bruce Feldman, LSU offensive analyst Jorge Munoz is expected to join Dave Aranda’s staff at Baylor as the wide receivers coach and passing game coordinator. While Munoz is not a prominent name on LSU’s staff, Joe Burrow thought so much of him that he invited him to the Heisman Trophy ceremony. Only four LSU coaches attended, and it’s obvious that Munoz had a big hand in developing Burrow.
Munoz was hired at LSU as an analyst back in early 2018 after coaching at Louisiana-Lafayette for 10 seasons. Prior to Oregon hiring Joe Moorhead as its offensive coordinator, Munoz received serious consideration for the vacancy, and he’s been a hot name on the coaching carousel.
Munoz would be the latest LSU coach on the move. Passing game coordinator Joe Brady was hired by the Panthers as its offensive coordinator, and Aranda left for Baylor.
However, there’s been some good news regarding LSU’s staff recently, too. Defensive backs coach Corey Raymond agreed to a three-year deal to stay at LSU, and receiver coach Mickey Joseph turned down a role on Nebraska’s coaching staff.
