LSU has its 10th assistant, announcing the hire of safeties coach Bill Busch on Thursday morning.
Busch is a former co-defensive coordinator at Rutgers who served as an assistant to Dave Aranda at Wisconsin.
“Bill is a consummate pro, who can scheme, coach technique and recruit. We are looking forward to getting him down here,” Aranda said in a release. “On top of all of that, he is a great guy.”
Busch was Wisconsin’s safeties coach from 2013-14 under Aranda. Prior to that stop, he was an assistant under Urban Meyer at Utah in 2003 and served as quality control coach at Ohio State before joining Rutgers’ staff in 2015.
“It’s a huge honor and opportunity to coach at a place like LSU and in the Southeastern Conference,” Busch said in the release. “Coach O is building something really special. It’s equally exciting to reunite with coach Aranda and work with coach Corey Raymond. I can’t wait to be a part of DBU.”
Football Scoop named him defensive backs coach of the year in 2012.
