LINCOLN - Nebraska defensive backs coach Corey Raymond said Friday that he's not interested in a defensive backs job opening at LSU, his alma mater.
"I'm not going to take that job," said Raymond, dressed head-to-toe in Nebraska gear while attending the Big Ten Track and Field Championships with Husker defensive grad assistant T.J. Hollowell. "I told (LSU) I wasn't going to come down there and do any interviews."
Raymond said his 14-year-old son, Chris, particularly liked Lincoln.
Rivals.com reported Thursday that Raymond was a potential target to replace Ron Cooper, who accepted a NFL job with Tampa Bay. Raymond played for the Tigers from 1988 to1991, and, after a six-year NFL career, coached as an intern and strength and conditioning assistant.
Nebraska Coach Bo Pelini was LSU's defensive coordinator at the time and added Raymond to his NU staff in 2011 when Marvin Sanders resigned. Sanders is now USC's defensive backs coach.
"I like working with Bo," Raymond said. "It's like being at the Harvard of football."
Raymond's salary at NU is $200,000 per year.
