“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.
