Reports: Miles To Hire Raiders Assistant To Coach Wide Receivers
by Scooter Hobbs
Former McNeese State player and coach Adam Henry is coming back to Louisiana, but not with the Cowboys. Henry, now the tight ends coach with the NFL Oakland Raiders, will be joining Les Miles staff at LSU. Miles traditionally does not fill coaching vacancies — or announce them, at least — until after the national signing day for recruiting, which is Wednesday. But Henry presumably will replace Billy Gonzales as LSU’s wide receivers coach. Gonzales left the LSU staff shortly after the BCS title game to take the offensive coordinator’s position at Illinois. That is the only opening Miles had to fill from last year’s staff. A source close to the LSU program told the American Press Monday night that the official announcement will come Friday.
