So I was wondering what the hell was going on at LSU as all of a sudden this year their offense was ridiculous and their QB was putting up godly stats. Knew the Mad Hatter must have went out and made a home run hire. Go to their site and sure enough that was the case. This guy is proven and with a nice track record and is from North Carolina.
Cameron, who has coached some of the NFL's top offensive players including Drew Brees, Philip Rivers and LaDainian Tomlinson, joins the Tiger staff after serving as the offensive coordinator for the past five years with the Baltimore Ravens.
A native of Chapel Hill, N.C., Cameron has 29 years of coaching experience to his credit, 15 at the college level and 14 in the NFL. Six of his 29 years in coaching have come as a head coach as he served five years as a head coach at Indiana from 1997-2001 and then followed that with one season as the head coach of the Miami Dolphins in 2007.
Most recently, Cameron helped develop Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco into one of the best at his position in the NFL. Flacco was named Super Bowl MVP after leading the Ravens to a 34-31 win over San Francisco in the Super Bowl. He also became the first quarterback in NFL history to lead his team to the playoffs in each of his first five seasons, all of which came under Cameron's watch.
In 2006, Cameron's play-calling helped the Chargers lead the NFL in scoring with 492 points and Tomlinson was named the NFL's MVP by the Associated Press after setting a franchise record with 1,815 rushing yards and 31 total touchdowns. Six members of the Charger offensive unit were named to the Pro Bowl that year.
Cameron was named the NFL Offensive Assistant Coach of the Year by SportsIllustrated.com in 2004 as Brees was selected to the Pro Bowl along with being picked the NFL Comeback Player of the Year and Most Improved Player of the Year.
In four years under Cameron, Brees threw for over 12,000 yards and 79 touchdowns, while Tomlinson rushed for over 1,300 yards each season.
