Multiple sources are reporting that LSU is set to hire Georgia passing game coordinator and wide receivers coach Cortez Hankton to join Brian Kelly's staff.

Hankton, a native of New Orleans, La., joined Georgia's staff as a wide receiver coach in 2018 and was promoted to pass-game coordinator & wide receivers coach in 2019.

The hire would mean that Brian Kelly's new on-field coaching staff is officially complete. Here's a rundown of the staff:

Mike Denbrock - Offensive Coordinator / Tight Ends Coach
Frank Wilson - Associate Head Coach / Running Backs Coach
Brad Davis - Offensive Line Coach *
Joe Sloan - Quarterbacks Coach
Cortez Hankton - Wide Receivers Coach

Matt House - Defensive Coordinator / Linebackers Coach
Jamar Cain - Run Game Coordinator / Defensive Line Coach
Robert Steeples - Cornerbacks Coach
Kerry Cooks - Safeties Coach

Brian Polian - Recruiting Coordinator / Special Teams Coach

Jake Flint - Director of Athletic Development

* Retained from last year's staff.
