Multiple outlets, including The Salt Lake Tribune, reported Wednesday night that Grimes, the Tigers’ offensive line coach of four seasons, will move to BYU, pending official approval.
Grimes has done a good job with the Tigers’ patchwork line amid injuries to Malone and others this season, as LSU stands 9-3 going into the Citrus Bowl vs. Notre Dame on Jan. 1.
He helped interim coordinator Steve Ensminger revamp the offense during a year that ended with a Citrus Bowl victory over Louisville.
He subsequently coached at Colorado, Auburn (winning a national championship), Virginia Tech and LSU, where he holds the title of running game coordinator.
The other coaches are Reno Mahe (running backs), Steve Clark (tight ends) and Ben Cahoon (receivers).
