After a brief stint at Southern California, Austin Thomas is back in Baton Rouge, La.
Thomas has returned to LSU’s staff as the assistant athletic director and director of player personnel, the program announced in a press release. Thomas returns to LSU after spending three months at USC in a similar capacity.
“We are excited to have Austin back on the staff,” LSU coach Les Miles said. “We hated to see him leave so we were thrilled when we were able to get him back. Austin is extremely talented and detail-oriented and he’s played a big role in our recruiting success over the last three years.”
Thomas rejoined USC’s staff in February after three years as LSU’s director of player personnel. He previously worked with the Trojans in a variety of roles from 2010-13 before landing at LSU in April 2013.
