Former Florida offensive coordinator Doug Nussmeier is headed to the NFL, not LSU.

Nussmeier was in line to become an offensive analyst under new Tigers offensive coordinator Steve Ensminger, but instead, ESPN reported, he will become the Dallas Cowboys’ tight ends coach.

Nussmeier spent five seasons in the NFL as a backup quarterback, then served as quarterbacks coach for the St. Louis Rams in 2006-07. The Rams’ coach at the time was Scott Linehan, and Linehan now is the Cowvboys’ offensive coordinator.

Nussmeier replaces Steve Loney, who retired at the end of the 2017 season.
