Ed Orgeron appears to be addressing James Cregg’s in a big way. On Thursday it was widely reported that LSU is hiring away Brad Davis from Arkansas as its new offensive line coach. It appears Davis won’t be the only offensive line coach heading to Baton Rouge.

College football insider Bruce Feldman is reporting, per a source, that Lee Grimes is joining the LSU staff as an analyst. Grimes had been hired as the offensive line coach at Kansas in December 2020. Kansas has since had a head coaching change.

A former lineman at Texas A&M, Grimes has been coaching since 2012. He got his start coaching offensive line for Lubbock Estacado High School. He then made the jump to college, holding the titles of run game coordinator and offensive line coach at East Texas Baptist University from 2013-15. He then went to Minnesota as a grad assistant for 2016 before returning to his alma mater.

Grimes was on staff at Texas A&M from 2017-19 as a grad assistant and senior offensive analyst. In 2020, he took the offensive line coaching position at UNC Charlotte.
