BA­TON ROUGE, LA. >> LSU coach Ed Org­eron says he is re­plac­ing spe­cial teams co­or­di­na­tor Bradley Dale Peveto, who held that post dur­ing the reg­u­lar sea­son.

Org­eron says he ap­pre­ci­ates the work Peveto has done but “de­cided to move in a dif­fer­ent di­rec­tion.”

This sea­son, No. 25 LSU has ranked in the bot­tom half of the South­east­ern Con­fer­ence in punt­ing and punt re­turns, while rank­ing last in kick­off re­turns.

The Tigers also strug­gled with field goals in their past two losses: a missed kick against Alabama and a botched snap and hold against Florida.

Peveto has had two stints at LSU, start­ing in 2005, and was hired both times by for­mer coach Les Miles. Peveto rose to co-de­fen­sive co­or­di­na­tor in 2008, then left the pro­gram un­til 2014.

LSU (7-4, 5-3 SEC) awaits a bowl bid.
