Cam Cameron appointed LSU offensive coordinator
Baton Rouge, LA, United States (4E Sports) – Cam Cameron is LSU’s new offensive coordinator.
He replaces Greg Studrawa, who led LSU to a No. 85 finish nationally in total offense in 2012. It finished 10-3 while overcoming injuries on its offensive line.
LSU has also been plagued by suspect quarterback play for years. The 52-year-old Cameron had been the Baltimore Ravens OC but was fired during the regular season, before the team’s Super Bowl run.
Cameron’s first project is to help develop Zach Mettenberger.
Mettenberger only had a 12-7 TD-INT ratio last season as LSU ranked No.92 in passing.
Cameron mentored Ravens QB Joe Flacco for five seasons (2008-12). While with the San Diego Chargers (2002-07), he played a key role in the development of Pro Bowl QBs Drew Brees and Philip Rivers, RB LaDainian Tomlinson and TE Antonio Gates.
As head coach at Indiana from 1997-2001, Cameron helped QB Antwaan Randle El blossom into one of the most dynamic talents in college football.
Cameron had an 11-year run in the NFL, which included 10 seasons as a coordinator and a disastrous 1-15 year as head coach of the Miami Dolphins in 2007.
