New Orleans native Jabbar Juluke, has been named running backs coach at LSU. Head Coach Les Miles announced the hiring.

Juluke comes to LSU after a brief stint at Texas Tech, which was preceded by three years as running backs coach at Louisiana Tech. Juluke will take the place of Frank Wilson, who was hired as the head coach at Texas-San Antonio last month.

“Jabbar is a veteran running backs coach with strong ties to New Orleans,” Miles said. “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."

Juluke is St. Augustine alum , and graduated from Southern University. He served as the head coach at Edna Karr High School for nine years where he led his team to one state title and three consecutive appearances in the state championship game.
