With the Matt Canada saga behind them, LSU was proud to announce coordinator Steve Ensminger as the program’s new offensive leader — once again that is.

You may recall Ensminger led the Tigers’ offense in 2016 after Ed Orgeron took over the program on an interim basis for the final seven games (plus the bowl game as the full-time head coach). During that stretch, LSU went 6-2 and had some remarkable, record-setting performances on offense. Starting with the 42-point outburst on Missouri, a 45-point game against Southern Miss, 38-point showings vs. both Ole Miss and Arkansas and a 54-point spectacle against Texas A&M.

Thursday, Ensminger met with the local media to discuss his promotion.

“I’m so excited about this opportunity. It’s a job I have worked my entire career looking forward to. It’s been offered before and didn’t work out for me,” Ensminger said.

Of course, the one position on everyone’s mind in Baton Rouge was also a topic of conversation.

“I look forward to developing these quarterbacks and showing them how to do it. We have a great group of quarterbacks,” he continued.

“This is my opportunity. I embrace it, I look forward to it and I will make this state proud.”

Ensminger closed on one humorous note, “See you guys in January (2019),” he said as he walked off.
