That was quick: LSU reportedly promotes from within to fill vacant RB coach spot
On Monday night, it was reported that LSU RB coach Tommie Robinson was leaving for the same position at Texas A&M.
Well, it didn’t take long for the Tigers to find a replacement, and they didn’t have to leave their own building to find him.
Per college football insider Bruce Feldman, LSU will make director of player development Kevin Faulk, a former New England Patriots and LSU star, the new RB coach:

Faulk has a ton of playing experience and has spent some time on staff at LSU as the director of player development.
Now, he’ll move into an on-field role. It’ll be interesting to see what he can get out of LSU’s running backs this spring and fall.
