LSU to hire Arkansas assistant Brad Davis as offensive line coach
It may have been an unexpected surprise that LSU was parting ways with offensive line coach James Clegg while planning a national search for a successor, the quick move for a replacement is not really too surprising.
Arkansas offensive line coach Brad Davis is reportedly expected to take the same position at LSU.
SOURCES: #Arkansas OL coach Brad Davis is expected to become the new O-line coach at #LSU, sources tell me and @BrodyAMiller. Davis is from Baton Rouge and has strong ties in the area. He's turned down some big jobs before but the opportunity to come home was a big lure.

A Baton Rouge native and Belaire High School alum, Davis has made the coaching rounds the past four seasons in the SEC with Florida (2017), Missouri (2018 and 2019) and Arkansas (2020).
As a player, Davis helped Oklahoma win two Big 12 championship teams and the 2000 national championship.
