Former LSU cornerback and graduate assistant Chevis Jackson will be joining Les Miles' staff at Kansas and will coach the defensive backs, the school announced Sunday.

Jackson was a three-year starter at cornerback for Miles at LSU from 2004-2007 and was a graduate assistant under LSU DB coach Corey Raymond in 2015.

He spent the last three seasons coaching the defensive backs at Ball State. Per KU Athletics:
quote:

LAWRENCE, Kan. – Kansas football head coach Les Miles began to shape his staff as he announced the hiring of Chevis Jackson to coach the KU defensive backs on Sunday. Jackson, who played an instrumental role on Miles' 2007 LSU team that took home a National Championship, spent the previous three seasons mentoring the defensive backs at Ball State.

"Chevis is one of the top young coaches in the game," said Miles. "He works hard to make a positive impact both on and off the field with the student-athletes he works with. He knows what it takes to be successful on the greatest stage in college football and will help instill that mindset to our program."

Les might be just what the doctor ordered for Kansas football. He can certainly get the kids to believe they can do it. He might do really well there.

Chevis was AWESOME. I'm shocked he didn't last longer in the NFL, clearly has the mind and experience to coach though.
