New LSU defensive coordinator Daronte Jones pledges that the unit he now oversees will err on the side of "overcommunicating" and play with a "violent" style.
"We want to minimize error, make sure we're overcommunicating, have an attacking-style defense where we can dictate the terms and play fast," Jones said during his introductory media conference on Tuesday. "The biggest thing that we want to do is do everything as violent as possible, and that's the aggressive mindset that we want to set forth."
Jones was hired last week following a protracted search to fill a vacancy that opened when Bo Pelini left the program on Dec. 21. LSU courted two other candidates for the job, starting with former Cincinnati defensive coordinator Marcus Freeman, who elected to join Notre Dame's staff.
