LSU hires Dameyune Craig as wide receivers coach

NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - LSU hired their second position coach in as many days naming Dameyune Craig wide receivers coach. Yesterday New Orleans native Jabbar Juluke was tabbed as running backs coach.

Craig comes to LSU with credentials of developing both quarterbacks and wide receivers at the collegiate level, while also having proven himself as an outstanding recruiter. He was named ACC Recruiter of the Year in 2012. Three quarterbacks who he either recruited or coached ended up being first round NFL Draft picks.

"Dameyune is a quarterback by nature so he's going to be a tremendous asset to us in all phases of the passing game," Miles said. "He coached a Heisman Trophy winning quarterback at Florida State and developed some outstanding receivers at Auburn."

Craig joins LSU after serving on the Auburn staff as co-offensive coordinator and wide receivers coach for three years. In 2013, Craig helped lead Auburn to the SEC title and an appearance in the BCS National Championship game in the same year.

Craig played quarterback at Auburn from 1994-97, where he still holds numerous Auburn passing records, including completions (216) and passing yards (3,227) in a season as well as a single-game record for most net yards gained (445 vs. Army in 1996; 75 rush, 370 pass).
