Report: LSU assistant turns down offer from SEC West rival
DBU’s position coach is reportedly staying put.
AL.com’s Matt Zenitz reports that LSU defensive backs coach Corey Raymond turned down an offer from Texas A&M. Aggies coach Jimbo Fisher is looking to replace cornerbacks coach Maurice Linguist who left for a position with the Dallas Cowboys.
A former LSU standout who spent six years playing in the NFL, Raymond completed his eighth season with the Tigers in 2019. Widely regarded as one of top secondary coaches in the sport, Raymond turned down an offer from Georgia roughly a year ago.
LSU’s secondary has produced nine NFL Draft picks under Raymond, including Jamal Adams and Tre’Davious White, who were both selected in the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft. This season, LSU’s Grant Delpit won the Jim Thore Award for top defensive back in the country.
