Auburn wide receivers coach Dameyune Craig leaving for SEC rival LSU

By  | 

Dameyune Craig is headed back to the Bayou.

Auburn's co-offensive coordinator, wide receivers coach and former Tigers quarterback has accepted an offer to be wide receivers coach at LSU, the school announced Sunday.

Craig, 41, is the fifth Auburn assistant to leave the program since the end of the regular season and the most notable departure from the offensive coaching staff in Gus Malzahn's tenure.

Craig released this statement:

"I want to thank the Auburn family for all of their love and support over the years. My decision to make this career move is in no way a reflection of Auburn or the Auburn family. It is strictly a professional decision. It's about growing as a coach and, hopefully, one day becoming a head coach. Auburn has played a pivotal role in my professional and personal life. Words can't express how grateful I am to the Auburn family and all of the incredible people who are part of that wonderful community. I will forever be indebted to the opportunities that Auburn gave me."

Malzahn released this statement:

"I want to thank Dameyune for his contributions during the last three years and wish him and his family nothing but the best. We will work quickly to search for his replacement."
