January 6, 2021

LSU has made it official.  Jake Peetz is the Tigers new offensive coordinator.

From his Carolina Panthers bio:

Jake Peetz was named Carolina's quarterbacks coach under new head coach Matt Rhule in January 2020. He spent the 2019 season with the Panthers as running backs coach, helping Christian McCaffrey put together a record-breaking season. Peetz has 10 years of NFL experience, spending time with the Jacksonville Jaguars (2008-12), Washington Redskins (2014) and Oakland Raiders (2015-17).

Under Peetz's guidance, McCaffrey became the third player in NFL history with over 1,000 rushing yards and 1,000 receiving yards in the same season. He led the NFL with 2,392 scrimmage, the third-most scrimmage yards in a single season in NFL history. McCaffrey reset his own NFL record for most receptions by a running back with 116 in 2019, becoming just the second NFL player with 1,000+ rushing yards and 100+ receptions in the same season.

In 2018, Peetz served as an offensive analyst at Alabama under head coach Nick Saban, a position Peetz also held in 2013. The Crimson Tide led all SEC teams last season with 522.0 yards per game and 45.6 points per game.

Peetz coached quarterbacks in his final two seasons in Oakland (2016-17), serving as assistant quarterback coach in 2016 and quarterbacks coach in 2017. Raiders quarterback Derek Carr earned two of his three consecutive Pro Bowl selections working with Peetz. Peetz originally joined the team as a senior offensive assistant in 2015, working primarily with the running backs. He helped Latavious Murray earn Pro Bowl honors after rushing for 1,066 yards and six touchdowns, the first 1,000-yard rushing season by a Raider since 2010.

Peetz spent one year with Washington as the offensive quality control/assistant wide receivers coach in 2014. In his one season working with Peetz, Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson led the NFL with an average of 20.9 yards per reception and led the team with 1,169 receiving yards.

His NFL coaching career began in 2012 as Jacksonville's offensive assistant/assistant quarterbacks coach. Before joining the team's coaching staff, he worked in scouting, serving as the team's BLESTO scout in 2010-11 after starting as a scouting assistant in 2008.

Peetz began his coaching career with two years on the collegiate level at Santa Barbara City College (2006) and UCLA (2007).

Peetz played defensive back at Nebraska from 2003-05 prior to entering the coaching ranks.
