LSU signs ex-OC Steve Kragthorpe to new administrative contract
Three years after being forced out of the offensive coordinator's job by Parkinson's disease, Steve Kragthorpe has received a new contract that will keep him at LSU in an administrative role.
Steve Kragthorpe may no longer be an LSU assistant coach, but he doesn't appear to be leaving Baton Rouge anytime soon.
The Baton Rouge Advocate reported Tuesday that Kragthorpe has received a new three-year contract that will run through March 2017 and pay him $150,000 a year as the program's "special assistant to the head coach/chief of staff for LSU football."
Kragthorpe was hired as LSU's offensive coordinator in 2011 following his failed stint as Louisville's head coach, but even before his first season with the Tigers, he was forced to give up coordinating duties after being disagnosed with Parkinson's disease. Kragthorpe served as the Tigers' quarterback coach for two seasons, then moved into an administrative position after the arrival of current LSU offensive coordinator Cam Cameron in February 2013.
