Did Les Miles and LSU not watch the 2012 Orange Bowl between West Virginia and Clemson?
Apparently former Clemson defensive coordinator Kevin Steele, who was fired after the 70-33 loss to WVU, is being hired by LSU and will join the football staff in an administrative capacity.
Of course, I am not sure what he will be “administrating” and I can only hope it doesn’t involve the LSU defense. After all, a 70-33 beat-down on national TV is not exactly the best ringing endorsement of ones capabilities as a defensive coordinator.
Before taking the DC job at Clemson, Steele was the head coach at Baylor (1999-2002) where he compiled a conference record of 1-31 and an overall record of 9-36.
For LSU’s sake, I hope Steele is a good coach who has just had some bad material to work with. I guess we will see.
