Tommie Robinson and Mickey Joseph, two coaches with a reputation of being outstanding recruiters, have joined the LSU coaching staff.
Robinson, who was recently named the Pac-12 Recruiter of the Year, comes to LSU after spending the 2016 season at Southern Cal as the running backs coach and run game coordinator for Rose Bowl Champion Trojans. Robinson will serve as LSU’s running backs coach and will hold the title of assistant head coach and recruiting coordinator.
Joseph, a native of New Orleans, joins the LSU staff after one year at Louisiana Tech where he coached running backs for the Bulldogs. Joseph will serve as LSU’s wide receivers coach.
“We are very excited to bring on board two outstanding coaches in Tommie Robinson and Mickey Joseph,” head coach Ed Orgeron said. “Mickey is well-known in our state and he has strong ties to New Orleans. He’s an outstanding coach with a great deal of experience on the offensive side of the ball. He’s an outstanding recruiter with a great work ethic and will be a tremendous addition to the staff."
“Tommie was recently named the Pac-12 Recruiter of the Year and is considered one of the top running back coaches in college football," Orgeron added.
Joseph, who is the brother of the recently named Denver Broncos head coach Vance Joseph, played quarterback at Nebraska from 1998-91. As a junior Joseph led the Cornhuskers to a 9-3 overall mark after accounting for 21 touchdowns (11 rushing, 10 passing).
