Thomas previously left LSU this offseason to the join the staff at Southern Cal. Per

Thomas spent nearly three years as LSU’s Director of Player Personnel before departing for a similar role at Southern Cal, where he had previously worked, in February of this year. After three months with the Trojans, Thomas opted to return to the LSU football staff.

“We are excited to have Austin back on the staff,” Miles said. “We hated to see him leave so we were thrilled when we were able to get him back. Austin is extremely talented and detail-oriented and he’s played a big role in our recruiting success over the last three years.”

That would make sense on his spot never being filled. Good news! I hope he stays for a long time.

This is much bigger than many may think. Not only is he one of the best if not the best at what he does, he could also be an AD candidate in 10-15 years. Many think the guy is talented enough to be an NFL GM as well. This is big.

i imagine there's a bit of frustration having to work for an administration that thinks hiring Lynn Swan was a good idea...much less all the turmoil around their football operations these past few years.

I wonder why the sudden change of heart? Was he pursued by LSU the last few months since he left, or did he not like USC, and asked to return?
