LSU in talks to bring in Cameron as OC

Former Baltimore Ravens offensive coordinator Cam Cameron is in talks with LSU coach Les Miles to run the Tigers' offense, said a person familiar with the situation.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Friday because the deal was not yet complete. The person says LSU hopes to have an official announcement next week.

The 52-year-old Cameron was fired by Ravens coach John Harbaugh after a Week 14 loss to the Washington Redskins. Following some late-season struggles, Baltimore went on to win the Super Bowl with former Colts coach Jim Caldwell as offensive coordinator.

Greg Studrawa has been LSU's offensive coordinator the past two seasons. He is expected to be retained as offensive line coach.

LSU went 10-3 last season and finished No. 14 in the nation, but the offense struggled with a new quarterback and an offensive line that was beset with injuries. The Tigers ranked 10th out of 14 teams in the Southeastern Conference in total offense, and first-year starting quarterback Zach Mettenberger finished near the bottom of the conference in efficiency rating. LSU was 92nd in the nation in passing.

Studrawa became offensive coordinator shortly before the 2011 season began when Steve Kragthorpe, who had been hired a few months earlier to run the offense, was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. Miles shuffled his staff and Kragthorpe, the former Louisville and Tulsa coach, remained on as the quarterbacks coach.

Miles and Cameron go way back. The two worked together from 1987-93 as assistants under Bo Schembechler at Michigan.

Cameron was head coach at Indiana from 1997-2001. He never had a winning record with the Hoosiers, but his offenses with Antwaan Randle-El at quarterback were productive. After that he spent five seasons as offensive coordinator with the San Diego Chargers, developing a prolific offense with Phillips Rivers and LaDainian Tomlinson.

That helped him land the job as Miami Dolphins head coach in 2007, but he was fired after one season. He went 1-15 as Nick Saban's replacement in Miami.

He joined the Ravens in 2008 and helped develop quarterback Joe Flacco.
