Lovett will also coach the defensive backs at Louisiana Tech.
In a report on Louisiana Tech's official web site, head coach Jack Bicknell said the team will continue to run a 3-4 defense:
"Scheme wise we will continue to run a 3-4 on defense," Bicknell said. "However, it's vital that our defensive players become familiar with Coach Lovett. There is always a transition when you bring in a new coordinator, whether offensive or defensive."
Lovett was the defensive cooridnator and secondary coach at Clemson for three seasons (2002-04).
