According to several sources, including Bryan Lazare of Rivals.com, LSU tight ends coach Don Yanowsky has been named special teams coordinator for the Memphis Tigers and will serve under new head coach Larry Porter.
Yanowsky acted as LSU’s positional coach for tight ends as well as its recruiting coordinator after Les Miles hired him on before the 2009 season. Once Frank Wilson came on board - to replace Larry Porter - Wilson was given the title of recruiting coordinator.
The Tigers just reeled in an impressive recruiting class of 2010, and the tight end position is one which was heavily bolstered. Community college signee Ken Adams joined Nick Jacobs of Many as well as Travis Dickson of Ocean Springs, Miss., as the Bayou Bengals’ newest crop of tight ends. They will join DeAngelo Peterson, already on campus and who played decent minutes last year.
It is not known who will take over/be hired on as the new tight ends coach.
