Linehan seeking to add to offense
“I look at it like there’s no intimidation at all. I look at it like, you want to be part of a great system and this system already is great. I just want to add to it, you know, when I can, and I want to do the best job I can to continue exactly the same approach ... and move ahead.”
Those were the words spoken by newly minted LSU Tiger passing game co-ordinator Scott Linehan as he was interviewed by ESPN 104.5’s program “Off The Bench”.
Linehan, whose resume includes being the head coach for the St. Louis Rams and the offensive co-ordinator for the Dallas Cowboys, Detroit Lions and Minnesota Vikings, was hired in February to replace the departing Joe Brady, who left to become the offensive co-ordinator of the Carolina Panthers.
Linehan has not been in the college ranks since 2001, when he was the offensive co-ordinator for the Louisville Cardinals. Linehan does not let the fact that he is a 30+ year veteran of the coaching ranks bother him at all.
“I’m not old yet, I’m experienced,” the 56-year-old Linehan said. “And I think experience can add some value to a great offense already here with [offensive coordinator Steve Ensminger] and the staff.”
Depending on how things develop in the Corona virus situation, LSU is set to open the 2020 season with UT-San Antonio.
