Reports: Cincinnati OC Mike Denbrock heading to LSU

Cincinnati offensive coordinator Mike Denbrock is expected to leave the school to take the same position at LSU, multiple outlets reported Saturday.

Denbrock joined the Bearcats staff in 2017. In 2021, he helped to lead Cincinnati to an undefeated regular season and the College Football Playoff.

The Bearcats were the first Group of Five team to qualify for the CFP and were defeated by Alabama 27-6 on Friday in the Cotton Bowl. They finished with a 13-1 record.

At LSU, he’ll be joining the staff of Brian Kelly, who was hired Nov. 30. Denbrock, who turns 58 this month, worked under Kelly at both Grand Valley State and at Notre Dame. He’s also coached at Illinois State, Stanford and Washington.
