terrapintimes.com is reporting that Gary Crowton is close to leaving LSU and joining the staff of Maryland as Offensive Coordinator. This is a great move by Coach Edsall. He will be surrounded by Don Brown as DC and Crowton. Both are former head coaches. I am liking Edsall more and more with each passing day. Danny O’Brien will flourish under Crowton’s offense. Close the deal guys!!!!
I have mixed views of this possible hire. I believe runs more of a spread offense at LSU- not good for Danny O’Brien, and heard not a very good recruiter. Also, heard that people down in LSU want him gone. Time will tell if this works out.

danny o’brien should be great in the spread. he can throw long, short, with touch or drill it. he reads defenses very well. if ralph and franklin were still running the show you would still see them trying to run the option from time to time with danny which was a joke. lsu fans expect a national title every year and if they don’t somone is always to blame.
LSU had the 109th best offense in 2010, very mediocre and heard that Crowton not a great recruiter, I do have some concerns about him.
