He’s back. LSU is finalizing a deal with Corey Raymond to return as the next defensive backs coach of the Tigers after a stint at Florida.

The anticipation is that he will take on duties with the cornerbacks, but a title is still being worked out, sources tell LSU Country.

 

Raymond, an architect to the “DBU” tradition in Baton Rouge, makes his way back to Death Valley for a second run with the Bayou Bengals.

Raymond then coached the defensive backs at Florida for two seasons under Billy Napier before the two sides parted ways.

Raymond’s secondary has produced seven First-Team All-Americans during his time at LSU, a list that includes Eric Reid (2012), Jalen Mills (2015), Jamal Adams (2016), Tre’Davious White (2016), Greedy Williams (2018), Grant Delpit (2018 and 2019) and Derek Stingley Jr. (2019, 2020).
