Les Miles will introduce Cam Cameron as LSU's new offensive coordinator on Friday.

LSU spokesman Michael Bonnette said Thursday evening that Miles has notified his players that Cameron will be taking over for Greg Studrawa, who remains as offensive line coach.

The 52-year-old Cameron comes to LSU after serving as the Baltimore Ravens' offensive coordinator from 2008-2012. He was fired by Ravens coach John Harbaugh this past season after a Week 14 loss to the Washington Redskins, missing out on the club's Super Bowl run.

Studrawa has been LSU's offensive coordinator the past two seasons, taking over unexpectedly in 2011 when Steve Kragthorpe, who'd been hired for the job months earlier, announced he had Parkinson's disease and would only serve as quarterbacks 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, averaging 200.5 yards per game.

Miles and Cameron go way back. The two worked together from 1987-93 as assistants under Bo Schembechler and Gary Moeller 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 Drew Brees and LaDainian Tomlinson, as well as with Phillip Rivers, who took over as Chargers quarterback in 2006 when Brees went to New Orleans.

That helped Cameron 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, who was MVP of the Super Bowl won by the Ravens in New Orleans earlier this month.
