LSU coach Les Miles has hired former New York Giants assistant Thomas McGaughey as the Tigers' special teams coach.
McGaughey replaces Joe Robinson, who left last month to take a job on the North Carolina staff.
In addition to his special teams duties, Miles said McGaughey will assist on the defensive side of the ball.
"Thomas is a great addition to the staff," Miles said. "He comes to us with a wealth of knowledge and expertise in all phases of special teams. He's coached in both the NFL and college so he has a tremendous understanding of the game. We are excited about bringing Thomas and his family to LSU."
