Source: Raymond leaving for LSU

Changes appear to be on the horizon again for Nebraska, as TigerSportsDigest.com is reporting that Raymond will leave Nebraska for LSU.

Corey Raymond is headed home, according to TigerSportsDigest.com's Shea Dixon. The former LSU corner worked as an intern in Baton Rouge in 2006 and took an assistant strength coach position from 2007-2008.

Raymond, who has only been at Nebraska one year, met head coach Bo Pelini during his time as the Tigers defensive coordinator. Pelini was at LSU from 2005-2007 helping the Tigers win the BCS National Championship before transitioning completely into the head coaching position at Nebraska.

Nebraska's secondary was statistically the strength of the Nebraska defense last year. The unit ranked 34th nationally in pass efficiency defense (120.43) and 18th in passing yards allowed (192.2 ypg). Raymond played collegiately at LSU from 1988-1991 and graduated in 1992. He also played six years in the NFL (New York Giants, 1992-1994 and Detroit Lions, 1995-1997).

Dixon reports that Raymond will play a major role in Florida recruiting for the Tigers, despite being a strong recruiter in the Louisiana area.

Raymond was scheduled to make $200,000 this year, after being the only Nebraska coach to not receive a raise in the offseason. Departing LSU secondary coach Ron Cooper made a reported $350,000 last year.
