LSU head coach Les Miles wasted no time in bringing out two of the biggest changes people will see not only on the field this spring, but in recruiting talent for the Tigers year round with the two new assistant coaches he hired over the weekend. 

"We have a junior quarterback. How about that one? As opposed to a freshman or a sophomore," said Miles. "So no matter what, if we changed, nothing our execution should be better. But I think we're going to change some things." 

Miles introduced Jabbar Juluke and Dameyune Craig Wednesday. Both coaches are already familiar with Baton Rouge, although it's been a long time since either has lived here. 

Juluke starred for Southern's 1993 Black College national champs and will coach running backs. Craig, the former Auburn quarterback who was here with Nick Saban in 2004, will coach the wide receivers.

"We had a great time at Southern University here in Baton Rouge. I'm just living, I love the city," said Juluke. "It's a great place to be, and now I have a chance to coach at LSU. It's a dream come true and I'm very excited about this opportunity." 

"They're always going to compete for a championship. So that was very, very appealing," said Craig. "And to work for a man that's been successful in this conference, for a long period of time, is even more appealing. So it was a win-win situation."
