According to multiple reports, LSU offensive coordinator Steve Ensminger is stepping away from on-field coaching duties as the team's offensive coordinator.

The Advocate was the first to report the news.

Ensminger, an LSU alumnus, is expected to stay on the LSU staff. He has been with the team since 2010.

Ed Orgeron named him the offensive coordinator in 2018. He was the head of the offense during the national championship run, though, was largely overshadowed by passing-game coordinator Joe Brady.

LSU's offense showed promise throughout the 2020 season despite relying on true freshmen T.J. Finley and Max Johnson at quarterback after starter Myles Brennan was injured. LSU scored a season-high 53 points in the season finale win over Ole Miss. Johnson, who started the final two games, threw for 1,069 yards, completing 88 of 150 passes, for 8 touchdowns and 1 interception.

Monday, LSU fired Bo Pelini and a handful of other coaches, though WAFB reports that Ensminger's parting was his decision.
