TERRE HAUTE —
Cam Cameron, whose career includes head-coaching positions at the NFL and collegiate levels, has been tabbed as Louisiana State University’s offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach, football coach Les Miles announced Friday.
“I’m honored to be a part of LSU football and Louisiana State University,” said Cameron, a 1979 graduate of Terre Haute South High School. “It has been a special time these last few weeks. My wife is here in town with me. We are excited to be here.
“I’m really excited to get to know our players and I know this offensive staff. I’m really looking forward to working with these guys.”
“I think there is an opportunity to add a very fine football coach and a quality man to our staff.,” Miles said.
Cameron — who has coached some of the NFL’s top offensive players, including Drew Brees, Philip Rivers and LaDainian Tomlinson — joins the Tigers’ staff after serving as offensive coordinator for most of the past five years with the NFL’s 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 at the helm of Indiana (1997-2001) and followed that with one season in charge of the Miami Dolphins (2007).
Miles and Cameron served together on the Michigan coaching staff for seven years (1987-93). Miles coached the offensive line for the Wolverines during that span, while Cameron coached quarterbacks and wide receivers.
