According to Ross Dellenger, Kelly asked Brennan to not leave the Tigers and he decided to return because of his new coach’s “history of developing QBs & operating successful offenses.”

This is huge news for the Tigers, and fans of the LSU program. Even though Brennan hasn’t reached his potential or played nearly as much as everyone hoped as he’s struggled with injuries, he’s a very solid quarterback.

He can 100% be the leader of a winning program in the SEC, and with LSU’s options at QB seemingly dwindling, Kelly needed stability.

Brennan agreeing to stick around and continue playing for the Tigers is the first major early win for Kelly in Baton Rouge.

It’s honestly hard to overstate how important this is for the program. If you’re a fan of the Tigers, you have to be smiling right now.
