John Chavis enters his sixth season as LSU’s defensive coordinator. Chavis’ defenses have helped carry the Tigers to 53 wins over the last half-decade and this upcoming season will be no different. Known as “The Chief,” Chavis has a unit LSU will lean upon after the exodus of skill players on offense. He sat down with The Advocate for an interview earlier this week, a month removed from spring drills and three months ahead of the start of fall camp.
