LSU’s search for a new defensive coordinator didn’t take long — and it started right at the top.
The school announced Friday night that it has hired Wisconsin defensive coordinator Dave Aranda to replace Kevin Steele, who left LSU for Auburn barely 48 hours earlier.
Here are some reactions from across the Web on LSU's newest hire:
Lots of big wins for the SEC today. #LSU might've just notched the biggest win of all by reeling in Wisconsin's Dave Aranda to run Tigers D.— Bruce Feldman (@BruceFeldmanCFB) January 2, 2016
Aranda fielded the no. 1 scoring defense in the nation at Wisconsin with a bunch of 3-stars and walk-ons. Now he's going to freaking LSU.— Matt Hinton (@MattRHinton) January 2, 2016
Aranda is a fantastic hire for LSU, and a huge loss for a Wisconsin. But thinking of LSU’s talent with Aranda’s mind, and hoooo boy.— Tom Fornelli (@TomFornelli) January 2, 2016
Now, this hire as a Defensive Coordinator I like for the LSU Tigers.... https://t.co/MH0RIDpGGQ— Michael Detillier (@MikeDetillier) January 2, 2016
New LSU DC Dave Aranda is excellent. I quoted him (briefly) in my book; also this article is very good https://t.co/xTPlaHJ3D4— Chris B. Brown (@smartfootball) January 2, 2016
