BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

Former LSU star Kevin Mawae says he had a lengthy interview for the offensive line position Sunday, and was informed Tuesday he was no longer in running.

"I did have a rather lengthy interview on Sunday morning, and in no way did I think it was just a 'courtesy interview', said Mawae.  "I was informed yesterday that I would not be the guy, and just this morning read that the position has been offered to Jeff Grimes of VaTech."

The Roanoke Times reported Wednesday that the Virginia Tech offensive line coach accepted a job on the LSU coaching staff.

Mawae went on to say, "I do not believe my knowledge of X's and O's was a deterrent, rather Les and Cam's desire to have a coach who has proven to place players in the NFL. I am thankful for the opportunity to have interviewed for the job at LSU, my alma mater and I hope that Coach Grimes, or whomever they officially announce as the next O-Line coach, is everything that LSU needs and what Les and his staff wants in both a coach and a recruiter.  Again, I want to thank Coach Miles and Coach Cameron for their time and the consideration they gave me!  I will always Love Purple and Live Gold, Forever LSU! GEAUX TIGERS!"

    LSU went back to work this week in preparation for the Citrus Bowl against Notre Dame. A win would be nice, but this is also a chance to get some freshman playing time to get ready for 2018. Well it'll come in practice only. "Those guys will get more reps. So I'll give them a couple of more reps at the end of a team period. It's sending the wrong message to our football team. It's all focus on winning the game. Exactly what we did last year," said LSU Head Coach Ed Org...
