If you’re wondering what changed, the answer is plenty.
First off, LSU hired a new head coach. Second, starting quarterback Max Johnson decided to leave as a transfer.
Johnson’s transfer likely opened up a path for Brennan to regain his starting job.
Brennan was the starter entering the 2020 season but suffered an injury early into the season and was replaced by Johnson. Then Brennan suffered a broken arm ahead of the 2021 season, allowing Johnson to become the starter once again.
If all goes well for him, Brennan could be the starting LSU quarterback in 2022. Brennan passed for 1,112 yards, 11 touchdowns and 3 interceptions in 2020 before getting hurt.
