TCU co-offensive coordinator Justin Fuente is reportedly one of several top candidates for the offensive coordinator position at LSU.
Tiger offensive coordinator Gary Crowton announced Thursday that he took the offensive coordinator coaching position at Maryland.
Fuente, who has coached at TCU since 2007 and been the co-coordinator with Jarrett Anderson since the spring of 2009, has helped the Horned Frogs' offense set new standards in yards and points the last two seasons.
Fuente, 34, interviewed for the same position at Clemson last week but that job went to Chad Morris, who helped lead an offensive turn around in one year at Tulsa after coaching at Texas high schools for 16 years.
Fuente played quarterback at Oklahoma for two years before transferring to Murray State. His first coaching experience came at Illinois State in 2001 as quarterbacks coach. He was named offensive coordinator in 2004 before becoming TCU's running backs coach in 2007.
