    LSU assistant coach Jerry Sullivan retires
    Wide receivers assistant coach and passing game coordinator Jerry Sullivan retired from coaching at LSU on Wednesday.

    Sullivan served as an analyst last year with the Tigers as Coach Ed Orgeron brought him onboard to help mentor a young and talented receiving corps along side receiver coach Mickey Joseph.

    “Jerry had a great career, one that saw him develop, groom, mentor and train some of the best to ever play the wide receiver position at any level of football,” Orgeron said. “I can’t thank Jerry enough for the contributions he made to our program over the past two years.”

    Sullivan's latest stint with the Tigers follows on the heels of a seven year run at LSU from 1984-90.

    Prior to coming back to LSU, Sullivan served with six different NFL teams coaching some of the best in the professional league.

    Sullivan was not a on-the-road recruiter for LSU this past season and it is unknown if his position will be replaced.

    The LSU Tigers finished the season with a 40-32 victory over UCF in the Fiesta Bowl to close out the year with a 10-3 record.

    Whoever wrote that contract needs to be kicked in the balls if that is really the case. Looking at you Alleva...

    Any contract extension should contain a stipulation that the offense must finish in the top half of the SEC each year or the contract is null.

    Then you have ocs doing stupid shit when the object is to win games.

    That's not how you work contracts.

    11-2 was his record. He DID beat AtM three times.

    went to a New Years 6 with the toughest schedule in the country.
    he deserved an extention, he won't be the highest paid, didn't ask to be.
    he wants Coach E, went 11-2 with him last season, and will improve this season.

    most of you here crying over this thought he was going 8-4 or worse.

    He wants coach E, but glossing over the offensive deficiencies hurts your argument. Also, low predictions for 2018 had a lot to do with a lack of confidence in Eaux, which is not really a selling point.

    I wanted a hot shot OC for next year. Tired of the excuses and pretending like what we have is good enough. Until we fix the offense, we aren’t maximizing our potential, which is eventually a fireable offense.

    But if Eaux wants to ride with E, so be it. It’s his call. Bringing in lil’ Brady from the Saints to help is intriguing.

    To summarize my opinion...
    Give the man a fat bonus if you insist, but do not extend until he shows he can deliver consistent quality on both sides of the ball. Maybe year three or even four. Again, no one is beating down doors to poach him. Extensions are how we ended up with Miles on cruise control doing just enough to not get fired.
