It's Chavis

According to ESPN, we have a new DC.

LSU coach Les Miles has maintained that there wouldn't be any changes to his defensive staff until after the bowl game, but he has openings. One of the Tigers' co-defensive coordinators, Bradley Dale Peveto, has already been named the head coach at Northwestern State, while the other co-defensive coordinator, Doug Mallory, is reportedly leaving to become the defensive coordinator at New Mexico.

 

Chavis, 52, spent the last 14 seasons as Tennessee's defensive coordinator. The Vols, despite their struggles on offense this season, ranked fourth nationally in total defense.

 

In nine of Chavis' 14 seasons as the Vols' defensive coordinator, Tennessee ranked among the top three in the SEC in total defense. Miles got an up-close view of Chavis' work during the 2007 SEC Championship Game when Tennessee held the eventual national champion Tigers to just one offensive touchdown.

I'm really happy with this hire.  There's still rumors Ed Orgeron is coming as the d-line coach, which would also be outstanding.  To be honest, Chavis is the guy I wanted, as I've always been impressed with UT's defense.  More to come, I'm sure.
