BATON ROUGE, La. -- When we last saw Cam Cameron on a college football sideline, he was finishing a five-year stint as head coach at Indiana with George W. Bush just finishing his first year as president and Nick Saban still a year away from winning his first national championship at LSU.
Twelve years and three NFL jobs later, Cameron is back to the college game as LSU's offensive coordinator. That means relearning NCAA rules, remembering what it's like to coach players at a different stage of development from the pros and, perhaps most importantly, there's one more aspect he'll have to get good at again.
"I'm thrilled to be back in recruiting," said Cameron, who recruited plenty in his days as an assistant at Michigan and Indiana, and then again as Indiana's head coach from 1997 to 2001.
