Could LSU’s all-time rushing king be on his way back to Baton Rouge? It’s looking more and more possible that Kevin Faulk could be returning to Tiger Stadium.
Tigers head coach Ed Orgeron is reportedly considering hiring Faulk to a role in player development with the program, as reported by FootballScoop.com.
It’s not certain the exact title that Faulk would have if the deal is completed. Because Faulk is currently working as an assistant coach with Lafayette (La.) Carencro and would not take an on-field coaching role on Orgeron’s staff, such a hire would place restrictions on the Tigers’ recruitment of players from that school under the NCAA recruiting rules that were approved last summer.
Since his appointment in the fall of 2016, Orgeron has been heavily involved in efforts to connect former Tigers greats with the program, winning approval of players like College Football Hall of Fame running back Charles Alexander.
Faulk holds LSU’s all-time rushing record with 4,557 yards during his four-year career in Baton Rouge from 1995 to 1998. He tops an elite list at the school ahead of Dalton Hilliard, Alexander, Leonard Fournette and Derrius Guice.
He also won three Super Bowls and appeared on two other Super Bowl teams as a member of the New England Patriots from 1999 to 2011.
