LSU signs Cam Cameron to a 3-year deal to become the Tigers next offensive coordinator. (Jim Rassol / February 20, 2013)
Cameron spent the previous four seasons as the offensive coordinator with the Baltimore Ravens before being fired in December. The last time he coached in college was when he spent four seasons – 1997-2001 – as the head coach at Indiana University.
The deal still needs approval from the school’s board of regents.
According to detail of the contract, Cameron will receive $600,000 in 2013 and then $1.3 million in 2014 and $1.5 million in 2015.
LSU is coming off a 10-3 season with the Tigers ranked eighth in the Southeastern Conference in scoring offense (29.8 ppg) and 10th in total offense (374.2 ypg).
Greg Studrawa spent the past two seasons as LSU’s offensive coordinator after taking over for Steve Kragthorpe, who stepped down after being diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. Studrawa will remain on the staff in his previous position as offensive line coach.
