BATON ROUGE - LSU offensive coordinator Gary Crowton has resigned and will take a similar position at another school, head coach Les Miles confirmed on Thursday morning.

Crowton served as LSU's offensive coordinator and quarterback coach for four years, a span that saw the Tigers win a national championship and post a 40-13 overall mark.

"I appreciate all that Gary did for LSU during his four years with us," Miles said. "Gary helped us win a lot of games over the last four years, including a national championship. He's an outstanding coach and a man of great character.

"We wish him and his family well in any of their future endeavors."

Miles said that a search for Crowton's replacement will begin immediately.
