Studrawa was the longest-tenured assistant coach on Les Miles' staff and just completed his seventh season with the Tigers. Studrawa spent 2013 back on the sideline after serving as the offensive coordinator in a dual capacity the last two seasons.
Studrawa came under fire while both the offense and offensive line struggled under his command. He also received his share of criticism for the recruitment of Cameron Robinson, who enrolled this week at Alabama. LSU recently sent Brick Haley into Monroe to serve as the lead recruiter for that part of the state, a region led by Studrawa in the past.
Studrawa came to LSU before the start of the 2007 season after serving as the offensive coordinator at Bowling Green for the previous three seasons.
Though the offensive line had moments of success during Studrawa's tenure, his inability to produce NFL offensive linemen was another knock against him. Only Herman Johnson (fifth round, 2009) and Joe Barksdale (third round, 2011) were drafted during Studrawa's time at LSU.

The news of Studrawa's firing has started to create some buzz as to who may replace him. Andy Moeller, a current assistant with the Baltimore Ravens, has gained a lot of early momentum as a possible candidate for the vacancy.
