New LSU OC Jake Peetz shares thoughts on Tigers' offense, plans heading into 2021 season
LSU’s offensive staff has undergone plenty of changes this offseason. Jake Peetz is now the offensive coordinator and DJ Mangas will be the passing game coordinator under head coach Ed Orgeron.
And while the Tigers just won a national championship and went 15-0 two seasons ago, things didn’t go as well for them in 2020, when they went 5-5 (and that included ending the year on a two-game winning streak). So they’ll be looking to get back on track when they return for the 2021 season.
In a video shared by LSU on Twitter on Friday, Peetz shared some of his thoughts regarding the Tigers’ offense and what he hopes to do for the program in the future.
“What they did a great job in 2019 is they put playmakers in position to make plays,” Peetz said in the video. “… There’s just a lot of things to be encouraged about, and what we’re going to try and do is build off of 2019, learn the lessons from last year and bring a great product to the state of Louisiana. …
“I understand what’s expected, and we’re going to put an exciting brand of football out there, where we’re going to put our great players out there in great positions to make plays.”
LSU will open the 2021 season with a matchup against UCLA at the Rose Bowl on Sept. 4.
