After initially turning down the chance to interview at his alma mater, former LSU player Corey Raymond is indeed going to leave Nebraska to join Les Miles’ staff as the school’s secondary coach.
“It was the chance to go home,” Raymond told The Lincoln Journal Star. Still, it took Miles two runs at the ex-Tiger to land him. The now ex-Cornhusker coach said telling Nebraska coach Bo Pelini was “one of the toughest things” he’s had to do. “Because he was so instrumental in my career. He played a big role in getting me to where I’m at now.”
Raymond played at LSU from 1988 through 1991.
Interestingly, The Journal Star reports that Raymond was “heavily involved in the recruitment of Tre’vell Dixon, and is a longtime friend of the coach of the four-star athlete from Baldwin, Louisiana.”
Ron Cooper left LSU for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers less than a week ago.
