BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - The pride LSU and its fans have in the nickname “DBU” is well known because the Tigers have produced some of the best defensive backs college football has ever seen.

Many of those players have gone on to also have outstanding careers in the NFL.

Now, reports have surfaced that the man who has coached those defensive backs since 2012 could be on the move this offseason.

LSU cornerbacks coach/recruiting coordinator Corey Raymond has reportedly been offered the secondary coach position at the University of Texas under new head coach Steve Sarkisian.

It adds some fuel to a small fire that started in the 2019 season after LSU beat Texas, 45-38, in Austin but went cold in 2020 thanks to COVID because the scheduled rematch between the schools was canceled.

Raymond, a native of New Iberia and 1992 graduate from LSU, just finished his ninth season with the Tigers. His title as recruiting coordinator was added in February 2020.
