O’Neill – St. Mary’s graduate and former O’Neill resident has accepted the offensive coordinator position for the LSU Tigers football team.
Jake Peetz a former Cardinal standout and Nebraska Football Walk-on has been named the offensive coordinator for LSU. Peetz will be returning to the SEC as he was an offensive quality control assistant and offensive analyst for Alabama in 2013 and 2018. Peetz first job was at Santa Barbara City College as a Safeties and Strength and Conditioning Coach in 2006. Since then, Peetz has had stops at UCLA, Alabama, the Jacksonville Jaguars, the Washington Football Team, the Las Vegas Raiders, and most recently the Carolina Panthers.
Peetz has had the opportunity of working with great coaching minds like Nick Saban, Norm Chow, Jay Gruden, Sean McVay, Matt Rhule, Joe Brady, and Jack Del Rio. Peetz will get his first chance as an offensive coordinator with LSU as he works with head coach Ed Orgeron.
“Jake brings 10 years of NFL experience with him to our staff. He spent a season coaching alongside and learning from Joe (Brady) so we couldn’t be more excited about Jake joining our staff. His knowledge of football combined with the players we have on our roster, will make for a dynamic offense for LSU in 2021,” Orgeron said in a statement.
KBRX would like to congratulate Jake Peetz on this accomplishment and wish him luck with the LSU football team.
