LSU poaches RB coach Jabbar Juluke from Texas Tech

LSU announced the hiring of a new running backs coach Saturday morning. Les Miles and the rest of his staff will be welcoming Jabbar Juluke to Baton Rouge from Lubbock, Tex. where he coached running backs at Texas Tech.

“Jabbar is a veteran running backs coach with strong ties to New Orleans,” Miles said in a released statement. “He has a proven track record of success at both the college and high school level and he’s going to do a great job of continuing to develop our players both on and off the field. Jabbar is a great fit for us and we are excited to have him join our program.”

Juluke spent three years at Louisiana Tech before moving on to Texas Tech. A New Oreleans native, he replaces departed running backs coach Frank Wilson, who left for the head coaching role at UT San Antonio.
