Advocate file photo by BILL FEIG -- LSU quarterback Anthony Jennings runs to LSU's first touchdown in the Outback Bowl last season.

Virginia Tech offensive line coach Jeff Grimes has been offered the job to be LSU’s new offensive coordinator, coachingsearch.com reported Wednesday.

Grimes has been linked to the job for several days and emerged Tuesday as the leading candidate to replace Greg Studrawa, who “left” the school after seven seasons, the university said.

Grimes is the Hokies offensive line coach and run game coordinator. He just completed his first season at VT. He was previously at Auburn from 2009-2012 and is a Texas native who graduated from UTEP.
