BATON ROUGE – Brad Davis, a Baton Rouge native and member of Oklahoma's 2000 national championship team, is LSU's new offensive line coach, head coach Ed Orgeron officially announced on Thursday.
 
Davis joins the LSU staff after spending the past four seasons coaching offensive lines in the Southeastern Conference. Davis coached at Florida in 2017, followed by two years at Missouri. Last year, he served as the offensive line coach at Arkansas.
 
During his coaching career, Davis has had 14 of his offensive linemen earn all-conference honors.
 
"Brad is a game changer for us and he's a great addition to our staff," Orgeron said. "We are excited about having him come home to be a LSU Tiger. Brad is a proven offensive line coach who has developed some outstanding players during his coaching career. He also gives us another tremendous recruiter on the staff."
 
Davis coached at Arkansas in 2020 after two years on the staff at Missouri where he developed Tre'Vour Wallace-Sims into a first team All-SEC offensive lineman.  Davis' Missouri offensive line helped pave the way for an offense that rushed for 151.7 yards per game in 2019. The 2018 Missouri offense ranked No. 13 in the nation with 481.8 yards per game and were No. 18 nationally in scoring with 36.6 points a contest.
 
Prior to joining the Florida staff in 2017, Davis coached the offensive lines at North Texas (2016), East Carolina (2015) and James Madison (2014). At James Madison, Davis also served as the co-offensive coordinator for a Dukes team that finished 9-4 and earned a spot in the FCS Playoffs.
 
In five years as the offensive line coach and run game coordinator at Portland State (2009-13), Davis helped the Vikings set numerous school records including total yards (6,486) and yards rushing (3,330), rushing yards per game (277.7), rushing touchdowns (36) and total yards per game (540.5).
 
The Baton Rouge native prepped at Belaire High School and later went on to an outstanding playing career at Oklahoma. A 2003 graduate of Oklahoma. Davis was part of two Big 12 championship teams and the 2000 national championship team. He was named the team's Most Valuable Offensive Lineman in 2002.

I thought Brad Davis was the best OL coach Littrell has hired. That is until Bloesch came along. Either way, excited to see the recognition a great coach deserves

Didn’t have the talent Bloesch has now, but man he really made me think we have promise at OL for Mason

      5. North Texas  
      After winning 18 games from 2017-18, the Mean Green have slipped to an 8-14 record over the last two years. Scoring points won’t be a problem for coach Seth Littrell’s team in ’21. However, the defense has to show marked improvement to get back to a bowl.
       
      Previewing the Offense
      Strength: The Mean Green led Conference USA in scoring (34.4 ppg), yards per play (6.6), and most gains of 40-plus yards (19) last season. Littrell has to sort out an intriguing quarterback battle between Austin Aune and former North Carolina signal-caller Jace Ruder, but this unit should be explosive once again. DeAndre Torrey and Oscar Adaway III lead a strong backfield, and four starters return from one of the top lines in the league. A healthy Jyaire Shorter at receiver will help replace the production left behind by Jaelon Darden.
      Concern: Can Aune or Ruder claim the job and play with enough consistency to keep the offense on track all year? Shorter’s return is huge, but North Texas needs a couple of other playmakers to emerge at receiver. The offense has to do a better job at managing turnovers after losing 15 in 2020.
      Incoming Transfers: QB Jace Ruder; WR Tommy Bush
      Previewing the Defense
      Strength: Littrell’s hire of veteran coordinator Phil Bennett was a strong move to get a struggling defense pointed in the right direction. Tackle Dion Novil and linebackers Tyreke Davis and KD Davis are three key players among nine returning defensive starters for North Texas in 2021.
      Concern: This unit allowed a whopping 42.8 points a game and surrendered 6.94 yards per play last season. Even with a new play-caller and help through the transfer portal, major improvement might be a year away.
      Incoming Transfers: DB Logan Wilson; DB John Davis; DB TyRae Thornton; DL Kameron Hill; LB Carson Kropp; CB Ridge Texada; LB Sean-Thomas Faulkner; DL Enoch Jackson; DB Greg Francis

      SMU is 17-6 over the last two years, but if coach Sonny Dykes’ team wants to take the next step and contend for the conference title, there’s one glaring question mark to address this offseason. The Mustangs aren’t lacking for skill talent at running back or receiver, but uncertainty remains under center after the departure of Shane Buechele. Oklahoma transfer Tanner Mordecai and freshman Preston Stone are set to compete for the job and are crucial to the overall success of SMU’s 2021 season. The Mustangs gave up 30.9 points a contest last year, but seven returning starters under new play-caller Jim Leavitt should be enough to generate improvement on defense.
