After ten seasons with the LSU Tigers as an assistant coach Corey Raymond, a former LSU player in the early ’90s is no longer the cornerback’s coach in Baton Rouge, instead of heading south to SEC rival Florida.
Matt Zenitz first reported the news via Twitter that Raymond would be joining new Gators head coach Billy Napier in Gainesville.
The shocking news sent ripples through the LSU fanbase as they’ve been accustomed to one of the best, if not the best defensive secondary year in and year out under Raymond’s tutelage.
Raymond is considered the “Godfather of DBU (Defensive Backs University)” after recruiting and developing some of the best in the college and professional game.
The New Iberia native, Raymond played six years in the NFL but spent the last ten years coaching at LSU.
