Leave a comment

The reigning national champions have a new analyst with NFL experience in the program. Sean Baker has joined the Tigers as a defensive analyst, according to The Advocate.

Baker is following LSU defensive coordinator Bo Pelini to Baton Rouge after serving the previous three seasons as a linebackers coach for Pelini at Youngstown State (Pelini had been the head coach at the FCS program prior to his return to LSU this offseason). LSU has added another Pelini assistant from Youngstown State as a defensive analyst as well with the addition of Donald D’Alesio. D’Alesio was Pelini’s defensive coordinator at Youngstown State.

Baker will bring with him five years of NFL experience between brief stints with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Atlanta Falcons, Indianapolis Colts, and Cleveland Browns.
