BOSTON (CBS) – Brian Kelly is putting his stamp on LSU, which means the new Tigers head coach is cleaning out the house and bringing in his coach. It’s not good news for LSU alumni and former Patriots who are turning away from Kevin Faulk.
Faulk has been a part of his alma mater’s football team for the past four years, but has not been kept on Kelly’s payroll, by Brody Miller of The Athletic. Faulk had served as the school’s running support coach for the previous two years, after two years as LSU’s director of player development. He was a member of Ed Orgeron when LSU won the National Title in 2020.
But now Faulk is being shown the door by Kelly, fired by the school where he did so much as a player, coach and recruiter. Faulk was a three-time All-SEC winner in his four years at LSU as a player, hitting a school record of 4,557 yards and 46 touchdowns. He was inducted into the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame in 2015.
There might be a spot for Faulk on Bill Belichick’s staff in New England, where the Patriots Hall of Famer has won three Super Bowls during his 13-year NFL career.
