John Brice of Football Scoop is reporting that LSU coach Brian Kelly is set to hire North Carolina State Director of Scouting Corey Phillips to his personnel staff.

Phillips is a former Nashville-area high school coach and served as was the assistant recruiting coordinator at Vanderbilt from May 2016 to Sep. 2021.

He is expected to take on "a high-end personnel position within the Tigers’ program," according to the report.

Phillips’ impending addition to Kelly’s first staff is seen by industry insiders as another major recruiting move for Kelly, who’s coaching in the South for the first time in his three-decades-long career. In addition to his work at Nashville’s Father Ryan High School as that private-school program’s top assistant coach and director of recruiting, as well as his work at prestigious prep powerhouse Brentwood Academy – running freshman, junior varsity contests and varsity defenses along the way, Phillips had a five-year stint on the recruiting/personnel staff of Derek Mason prior to his work at N.C. State.

Na, Kelly doesn't need ole T-Boy to pass him a water... This guy actually has experience not only coaching, but serving on collegiate staffs as well. As opposed to someone whose experience consists of just being a radio personality and only got a job because they knighted for someone on their local ESPN radio station that they happen to host a show that they used as a platform to convince a bunch of other idiots it was a good idea to help O get a head coaching job and thus, is being rewarded for being a good lil T-boy.
