Assistants on the move?

CBS Sports' Tim Brando has some interesting insight about the possibility of LSU offensive coordinator Jimbo Fisher finding a new job. If Fisher were to leave, then LSU would be in the market for a new offensive coordinator and possibly the most important hire Les Miles has made since coming to LSU.

Anyone who has watched the likes of Lynn Amedee, Morris Watts, Bob McConnell and others knows how important a good hire - as Fisher has been - is to the program.

Fisher may not be the only one headed out of town. Defensive coordinator Bo Pelini remains a hot name.

Pelini has been linked to some head coaching jobs. And Tom Dienhart of The Sporting News lists him as one of the hot candidates for coaching jobs in 2007.

Thus, Miles could also find himself without Pelini. And after a rocky start of two games, few could argue with Pelini's defense at LSU.

If both Fisher and Pelini find new addresses, then Miles will need to make the best possible hires - or risk seeing the program slip.
