James Cregg

BATON ROUGE – LSU has parted ways with offensive line coach James Cregg, head coach Ed Orgeron announced on Wednesday.

Orgeron said he will immediately begin a national search for Cregg’s replacement. Cregg was named to the position in December of 2017.

Cregg did perhaps his best coaching job in 2019, molding the Tiger offensive line into a unit that claimed the Joe Moore Award., which is presented to the best offensive line in college football. It’s the first time in the history of the award that a unit from LSU won the honor.

Prior to joining LSU, Cregg spent four seasons as the assistant offensive line coach for the Los Angeles Chargers. He held the same position at previous NFL stops with the Denver Broncos (2014-16) and the Oakland Raiders (2007-08). He won a Super Bowl with the Broncos in 2015.

LSU marked Cregg’s third coaching stop at a Power 5 school as he spent four seasons at Southern Cal (2010-13) and one at Tennessee (2009).
