LSU assistant linked to job opening on Oregon's coaching staff
If you missed it a few weeks ago, Oregon offensive coordinator Marcus Arroyo left the Ducks to take over as UNLV’s new head coach.
Why is that relevant to LSU fans? According to one report, Oregon may be looking at a Tiger assistant to take over Arroyo’s open offensive coordinator spot in Eugene.
After 10 seasons coaching at Louisiana-Lafayette, Munoz was hired by LSU as an analyst back in early 2018. While Munoz may not be a name known throughout the college football world, Joe Burrow thinks so much of him, he asked him to attend the LSU analyst to attend the 2019 Heisman Trophy ceremony along with Ed Orgeron, Steve Ensminger and Joe Brady.
They were the only four LSU coaches to attend the event.
A recent report from Adam Rittenberg of ESPN suggests Oregon is interested in Munoz as a potential offensive coordinator.
“A new name in Oregon’s offensive coordinator search, per source: LSU offensive analyst Jorge Munoz. He’s a former offensive coordinator at Louisiana-Lafayette and also coached receivers and quarterbacks with ULL. Helped with Joe Burrow’s development at LSU.”
With this much success, overtures were bound to take place in Baton Rouge as Ed Orgeron and company are quickly learning the price for LSU’s massive success this season. It will be interesting to see what LSU’s staff looks like next season as Munoz joins the growing list of Tiger assistants being courted by other programs since the end of the regular season.
