Multiple sources are reporting that Oregon head coach Willie Taggart is pursuing LSU wide receiver coach Dameyune Craig to join his staff. Per The Advocate:

ORLANDO, Fla — Oregon head coach Willie Taggart reached out to LSU receivers coach Dameyune Craig several weeks ago regarding a position on his staff, a source confirmed to The Advocate, and the talks appear to be serious.

Taggart is heavily pursuing Craig, 247Sports.com reported Saturday as the Tigers kicked off against Louisville in the Citrus Bowl. The two have been in discussions, the site reported, and the process is expected to speed up after the bowl game.
Craig left Auburn to join LSU's staff last February. He has served as LSU's interim recruiting coordinator since October.

I think we have the cash to keep any assistant coaches we want. Coach Craig is an excellent recruiter and Coach O will surely want him to stay. Otherwise, he would have fired him along with Cameron and Peveto.

His choice, but at this point in his career I would think Oregon is a down move...

Especially now that his ultra talented position group is going to begin to shine with a new offense

Agree. I don't think craig left his Alma mater to come to LSU and then downgrade

You guys can't be arguing Offensive coordinator at Oregon is a downgrade from wide receiver coach at LSU, are you? Seriously? Really? Delusion at its best. If he has any designs on becoming a head coach, he has to take that offer. Oregon is not some 3rd world football program. That is a major promotion for Craig.

Not happy about this. Would love to keep Dameyune on the staff. Great recruiter and a real player's coach.

Being a "player's coach" is overrated as shite. Don't want to see him leave but don't care about having a player's coach

Yes, a "Great Recruiter" and "Real Players Coach" that has no clue how to technically coach and develop WR's. (His Alma Mater didn't even try to keep him on the Staff there when LSU came calling) We've got Raymond, Juluke, Aranda, Orgeron and hopefully Canada as the "GR's" on the Staffs. No loss here if he leaves. Great opportunity here for O to go out and hire a great WR coach that can actually develop the pass catching talent that's already at LSU. Way past time to have an entire Staff that can actually coach em up once they arrive at LSU. (The Bama Way)

Oregon should be banned from this site until Oregeron is long gone. It's confusing.

Piss off Taggart....

If he goes we need to go straight to Curtis Johnson. Currently WR coach for Bears.

Why OR? Seems like he is in a GREAT spot, with the rec duties as well, and at an above average mkt salary.... Unless they are making him the OC....

Craig would be an asset to any program, but he is obviously most valuable in the South.

Is it a larger position? Why would he do a lateral move out of the SEC an go to Oregon? He's been a southern guy his whole life

Plus, he's currently LSU's recruiting coordinator. Why would he leave that??? Maybe he's jockeying for a raise??

Would he be OC? Or do they have one

The Oregon/Orgeron similarity is confusing.
