For the second-straight season LSU will have a new-look offense, and by the sound of it, coach Ed Orgeron is confident in the scheme his staff has developed.

"I spend most of my time on defense. I just assist on offense when I get a chance," Orgeron said in an interview Tuesday on "After Further Review" on 104.5 ESPN FM in Baton Rouge. "But I totally trust our offensive staff. I couldn't ask for a better staff."

"Trust" seems to be an important word after former offensive coordinator Matt Canada and LSU split after just one season. Their relationship turned icy in Year 1, sources close to the situation told The Advocate last December. A disconnect grew during the first month of the season, when the head coach admitted to meddling in Canada’s offense by removing the presnap movements in the first half of a game against Troy. The 24-21 loss sparked a meeting involving athletic director Joe Alleva, Orgeron and both coordinators, Canada and defensive coordinator Dave Aranda, a gathering that got them “all on the same page,” Orgeron said that week.

Orgeron described offensive coordinator Steve Ensminger, passing game coordinator Jerry Sullivan, running back coach Tommie Robinson and offensive line coach James Cregg coming up with an offensive attack they feel suits the Tigers skillset, which is a bit unique this year without an established, power running back but with a bevy of talented wide receivers.

"I enjoy having Steve (Ensminger) with me on the same page that I am (on) and Jerry Sullivan, who I consider the best out there and Tommy Robinson...and James Craig," Orgeron said. "So we formulated a plan, an offense -- we had blueprint that we all agreed on, and obviously Steve has control of it. He does a tremendous job of it."

Below are a few more questions and answers from the interview.

On having 19 commitments and adjustment to early signing date...

"Lot faster. You have to make decisions a lot faster because guys are committing a lot faster. We had started on this 2019 class two years ago ... as we all know this is a great year for the state of Louisiana, and we have focused on the state of Louisiana ... the thing I think that's made a difference in this recruiting class is we have our commitments recruiting other players, and that is very strong. We have some very strong players in this class that are helping us recruit other players ... I don't know -- and our coaches are on vacation right now -- besides one weekend that we have not been in the office recruiting on official visits and staying all weekend with official visits. That is new in the spring, usually guys after spring ball get to go home with their families and relax a little bit. But not this year. It has required a lot of time."

On his wife, Kelly...

"She's our rock. Kelly is strong. She's very smart. I run a lot of things by her. We've been married for 21 years now. I tell everybody, they see her and they see me; I say we went on a blind date, and they want to know if she was blind ... she's a wonderful mother. She's a tireless worker."

On new rule that freshman can play four games and not lose the ability to red shirt...

"We play freshmen. Last year we signed 22 players, and 20 played. If you go look over the years, some players over here could still be here ... Some guys are ready to play early, and things happen, and they hit a freshman wall, and they're not as good later. Some guys come in, and they're not ready to play, but they develop, and you can use them toward the end of the season because of injuries. It's a tremendous advantage. But I think it helps the student-athlete not burn a whole year when he only plays a small percentage."
