Carencro legend Kevin Faulk has always had a passion for coaching, dating back to when he graduated from Carencro. He also has a passion for LSU, after getting his degree from the university in 1999.

Now, two of his passions are combining, as Faulk was hired as the running backs coach for the Tigers in February.

"Awesome. Words can't explain it," Faulk said. "The feeling. Just the thought. When I first got hired, they were like, you know you can become the running back coach? The thought was like wow. My whole career, my agent knows I always wanted to be a coach. But after about year 5 or 6 in the NFL, my agent has always told me I'm in line to be a football coach. But he went even further and said 'God has a plan for you.' And for me it was just like wow. And to have this happen. Wow. Amazing."
