Since the LSU Tigers won the national championship, there has been a mass exodus of both players and assistant coaches.

That’s to be expected once you reach the pinnacle of a sport — players and coaches are supposed to move on to bigger and better things. Still, Tuesday was a rough day for the LSU analyst staff.

After losing top defensive analyst Ronnie Wheat earlier in the day, it was reported on Tuesday night that offensive analyst Blaine Gautier was leaving for a job at McNeese State.

Per Shea Dixon of 247Sports, Gautier will join Frank Wilson’s on-field staff at McNeese State coaching receivers. It’s hard to fault an analyst for wanting to leave for an on-field job, so we’ll see what LSU decides to do when it comes to replacing guys like Gautier and Wheat.

All we know for sure is there are a few holes on the coaching staff that coach Ed Orgeron will need to address in the coming weeks.
