LSU has hired a new defensive coordinator, and they’re paying big money for him.

LSU on Friday hired Blake Baker as their new defensive coordinator. The Tigers are paying Baker $2.5 million per year on a three-year deal.

The hiring of Baker comes two days after LSU let go defensive coordinator Matt House, who was on the job for two years. The program also fired three other assistants this week.

Baker will be making his return to LSU after coaching linebackers for the program in 2021. Baker was not retained by Brian Kelly when the former Notre Dame coach took over at LSU. Baker was initially hired as a safeties coach at Missouri but got promoted to defensive coordinator when Steve Wilks left for the NFL.
