Report: LSU’s Miles Interested In Lovett For Special Teams Job

Last week, LSU lost ace special teams coach Joe Robinson to North Carolina.  Les Miles said he was in no rush to fill the position.  But that doesn’t mean he’s not talking to people about the vacancy.

FootballScoop.com reports today that Miles “has interest in former Miami (FL) defensive coordinator John Lovett.”  Lovett was not retained by new Hurricanes coach Al Golden despite the fact that UM finished 16th in the nation in total defense and second in the country in pass defense.

Lovett’s name should be familiar to SEC fans.  He has coached in the league as a Tommy Tuberville aide.  Lovett served as the defensive coordinator at Auburn (1999 through 2001) and as the secondary coach at Ole Miss (1995 through 1998).  He has also coached at Clemson and North Carolina in the ACC.  At Carolina, he was the Tar Heels’ special teams coordinator.

At LSU, Robinson worked with defensive linemen in addition to his special teams duties.  With his defensive background, it seems that Lovett could fill that role, too, if Miles desired.
