Ed Orgeron has a vacancy on his coaching staff.
Senior offensive assistant and long-time receivers coach Jerry Sullivan is retiring from football, LSU announced on Tuesday night.
“Jerry had a great career, one that saw him develop, groom, mentor and train some of the best to ever play the wide receiver position at any level of football,” Orgeron said through an official release. “I can’t thank Jerry enough for the contributions he made to our program over the past two years.”
Sullivan was promoted to a full-time role this season and served as LSU’s passing game coordinator under Steve Ensminger. He was an analyst for LSU the season before that.
Upon his promotion, Sullivan signed a one-year contract that paid him $450,000. That deal was set to expire on Jan. 31.
Originally an LSU assistant from 1984-90, Sullivan spent 25 years in the NFL as a wide receivers coach.
