LSU offensive coordinator Cam Cameron is moving back to the press box, Tigers coach Les Miles announced on Tuesday during his weekly press conference.
"We kind of reviewed that and I think that what at Texas Tech was an obvious advantage, we did not get as much information from the box as we liked," Miles said.
"Cam has a pretty good view of offense and defense and can tell pretty quickly as opposed to having it relayed especially in between calls. We will look to reverse that. We feel like there are two young quarterbacks that can really help Brandon (Harris) off the field as well (wide receivers coach) Dameyune Craig who played (quarterback). We feel like we can reverse that step there by putting (Cameron) back in the box."
Against Texas Tech in the 2015 Texas Bowl, LSU had Cameron on the sidelines and the offense put up 56 points and had 638 yards (377 rushing, 261 passing) in a victory.
Things didn't go so well in last Saturday's 16-14 loss to Wisconsin as the offense only had one touchdown (Tre'Davious White scored the other on an interception return) and the Tigers put up just 257 yards (126 rushing, 131 passing).

We have better High School Football Coaches right here in Louisiana that have better commons sense than Les and Cam does. What happen in Green Bay was like looking at some kind of insane head coach running the same I formation offense - that has lost 4 out of the last six college football games. Is that the real problem, that Les Miles is insane...

@Old Tiger Lady Hopefully this means he doesn't have to counsel Harris on the bench, because Harriss isn't the starting QB anymore.
