Brad Davis was ready to come home.

That’s the message the offensive line coach sent when he accepted Ed Orgeron’s offer to be the new offensive line coach in Baton Rouge last week. The position became open after the team’s former offensive line coach, Jame Cregg, was suddenly dismissed by Orgeron.

LSU said a national search would follow but in just 24 hours, Orgeron worked quickly to manage to lure Davis away from Sam Pittman at Arkansas.

Davis is a Baton Rouge native and comes to LSU with a reputation not only as an elite assistant coach but a noted recruiter of the position.

“Brad is a game changer for us and he’s a great addition to our staff,” Orgeron said. “We are excited about having him come home to be a LSU Tiger. Brad is a proven offensive line coach who has developed some outstanding players during his coaching career. He also gives us another tremendous recruiter on the staff.”

Prior to serving as the offensive line coach at Arkansas, Davis served as Barry Odom’s OL coach at Missouri. He also has experience coaching the position at Florida.
