BATON ROUGE — LSU defensive backs coach Corey Raymond won't be one of the LSU assistants leaving Baton Rouge. The Tigers extend the New Iberia native three more years, according to reports.
Raymond was courted by Texas A&M, but Matt Zenitz of AL.com says he turned away the opportunity to join Jimbo Fisher's team.
Raymond's name has been floated as a possible replacement for Dave Arandam, who left LSU to take over the head coaching duties at Baylor. The contract extension makes that less likely, but does show LSU's commitment to the assistant coach.
Raymond joined LSU for a second stint in 2012, and is credited for helping LSU turn on NFL caliber defensive backs year-in-year-out.
