Report: Kragthorpe Is LSU’s Guy. LSU: Not Yet He’s Not.

Radio reports in Louisiana suggested yesterday that Steve Kragthorpe has been tabbed as the new offensive coordinator in Baton Rouge.  But take out your Number 2 pencil and repeat after me: “Not so fast, my friends.”  At least that’s what LSU’s saying.

According to LSU’s media relations folks, Les Miles has not arrived at a final decision and isn’t likely to do so this week. 

Most sources close to the program suggest that Kragthorpe — the former Louisville coach — and Mike Sanford — Louisville’s current offensive coordinator — have moved to the top of Miles’ list. 

Former Florida quarterbacks coach Scot Loeffler met with Miles earlier this week, but he’s not believed to be in the final running.  Many other names that initially popped up appear to have been idle talk and nothing more: Justin Fuente (TCU), Wisconsin offensive coordinator Paul Chryst (who the San Francisco 49ers are now after) and Jim Chaney (Tennessee) were all supposedly going to be on Miles list.

Miles has reportedly talked with Southern Miss offensive coordinator Blake Anderson, too.  But The Hat hasn’t pointed at anyone yet.  And it doesn’t sound like he’s going to before next week.
