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.
