BATON ROUGE, La (BRPROUD) – Louisiana State University (LSU) Head Football Coach Brian Kelly announces new special team’s coordinator for the LSU Tigers as Brian Polian on Wednesday, Dec. 8. The news also joins Brad Davis—as LSU’s new offensive line coach.

Polian replaces Greg McMahon, who retired from LSU on Tuesday, Dec. 7 according to the news release.

“Brian Polian brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to our staff,” said Kelly. “He is a relentless recruiter whose special teams units routinely rank at the top of the country, and his work ethic, attention to detail, and ability to connect and communicate with student-athletes are unmatched. I know he will hit the ground running in Baton Rouge and make an immediate impact on our program.”

The release also states that Polian comes to LSU from Notre Dame, where he has spent the past five years on Kelly’s staff. In those five years, Notre Dame won a combined 54 games and made two appearances in the College Football Playoffs.

Polian shares his thoughts on the new role;

“I’m honored and grateful to join Coach Kelly’s staff at LSU and work with some of the very best student-athletes and coaches in the country,” Polian said. “I share Coach Kelly’s vision for sustained excellence for LSU Football, his belief in our ability to compete for championships every year, and his passion for holistically developing elite student-athletes, and I am eager to do my part in realizing that vision for this program.
