Doug Nussmeier, a former offensive coordinator at a host of big-name schools such as Florida, Alabama and Michigan, will not join LSU's support staff after all.
Nussmeier landed a full-time job as tight ends coach with the Dallas Cowboys, according to multiple reports Wednesday. Nussmeier, 47, planned to join the Tigers support staff as an offensive analyst, if he did not land a full-time job.
Nussmeier was most recently the offensive coordinator for the Gators and was fired in November when Dan Mullen was hired. Florida owes Nussmeier $830,000. He had one year left on his contract with the Gators.
The former New Orleans Saints quarterback has moved around quite a bit in the past decade as a college coach.
He was Fresno State's offensive coordinator in 2008 then moved on to be Washington's offensive coordaintor from 2009-2011. From there he was Nick Saban's offensive coordinator at Alabama from 2012-2013 before being the offensive coordinator at Michigan in 2014.
He was hired by Florida in 2015.
