Reports surfaced on Monday that the LSU Tigers were nearing a deal with New Orleans Saints assistant Ryan Nielsen to become their new defensive coordinator.

However, as ESPN College GameDay analyst Lee Corso would say, “not so fast, my friend!” It seems a potential road block has emerged in the situation.

Per NFL reporter Jane Slater, there’s a dispute about language in Nielsen’s contract that might not allow him to move to the college ranks and it seems the Saints aren’t signing off on the move:

What does that mean? Well, it could all be as simple as LSU having to buy out the rest of Nielsen’s contract with the Saints. Or, it could be more difficult. We’ll see what happens as this situation continues to evolve.

LSU is replacing DC Bo Pelini, who only lasted 1 year with the Tigers in his second stint in Baton Rouge.
