It didn’t take LSU football long to find a replacement for ex-Tigers offensive line coach James Cregg after parting ways with him earlier this month.

Several reports of Davis being the top candidate emerged shortly after the news came that Cregg was no longer with the program, and that was officially confirmed in a news release from the school on Thursday.

“Brad is a game-changer for us and he’s a great addition to our staff,” Tigers head coach Ed Orgeron said. “We are excited about having him come home to be a LSU Tiger. Brad is a proven offensive line coach who has developed some outstanding players during his coaching career. He also gives us another tremendous recruiter on the staff.”

Davis may not have any NFL coaching experience like other Orgeron hires do, but he’s done well across the Southeastern Conference between Arkansas, Missouri and Florida.

He also served as a graduate assistant at Texas A&M and North Carolina. Davis coached the offensive line at Portland State, James Madison, East Carolina and North Texas.

Over the course of his college coaching career, Davis has had 14 of his offensive linemen earn all-conference honors.

It will be interesting to watch just how much he can expand upon that success in Baton Rouge.
