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 Super Bowl XLVII with former Colts coach Jim Caldwell as offensive coordinator.
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 Philip 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.
