Friend of the website and Yahoo’s own Ross Dellenger reported Wednesday morning that LSU and offensive coordinator have reached an agreement on a three-year contract extension.

Thanks to Denbrock, LSU had one of the best offenses in the country. The Tigers led the country in both points per game (46.4) and yards per game (547.8) and Denbrock helped turn Jayden Daniels into a Heisman trophy finalist.

But the chart-topping numbers don’t stop there. Geaux247’s Glen West broke it down and found that LSU leads college football in 20+ yard plays, 30+ yard plays, and 40+ yard plays. LSU’s also the only school to average 300 yards passing a game and 200 rushing.

Denbrock was named a finalist for the Broyles Award, which is given annually to the nation’s best assistant coach. Iowa defensive coordinator Phil Parker ultimately won the Broyles.

As for LSU’s other coordinator...well it’s still being evaluated.
