The firing of Cam Cameron sparked a turnaround for the Ravens’ offense en route to a Super Bowl victory. LSU hopes that Cameron’s hiring, which could be announced this week, re-charges a troubled offense. Cameron was fired after Week 14 by the Ravens, who were 9-4 and slumping offensively after a 31-28 overtime loss to the Washington Redskins. They only used the no-huddle four plays in Cameron’s last game but rebounded to win Super Bowl XLVII with a 34-31 win vs. the San Francisco 49ers last week under Jim Caldwell as the play-caller. Cameron was an assistant coach at Michigan along with current LSU coach Les Miles from 1987-93. Miles is looking for help because the Tigers had an offense that ranked 77th in Division I and just 90th in passing under Greg Studrawa last season despite being 10-3. Studrawa is expected to shift to coaching the offensive line again after two years as the coordinator. In LSU’s three losses, it couldn't possess the ball long enough to win games they had in control in a 21-17 loss to eventual national champion Alabama and a 25-24 Chick-fil-A Bowl loss to Clemson. The coaching staff for the Ravens will remain intact for 2013, which is a plus considering that Super Bowl-winning teams can lose position coaches to promotions elsewhere.
