As recently as last month, rumors were circling that offensive coordinator Cam Cameron was done in Baton Rouge. Well, what a difference a month makes because now it seems he is getting an extension.
Despite mixed results at best since coming to campus in 2013, the Tigers are rewarding Cameron with a three-year contract extension. The news came in the same announcement that Ed Ogeron would be named recruiting coordinator.

According to The Advocate, Cameron is set to receive a three year deal similar to the one that new defensive coordinator Dave Aranda received, which is three years, $3.75 million. Cameron was the second-highest paid assistant in college football last year at $1.5 million, according to USA Today.
Under Cameron, the Tigers were ranked 43rd in scoring and 39th in total yardage in 2015. LSU is bringing back all-world back Leonard Fournette, although will need a significant improvement from the quarterback position to justify Cameron’s extension.
