Former South Carolina defensive coordinator Lorenzo Ward had a good day, jumping back into the Power 5 coaching world after being announced as Louisville’s defensive backs coach under new defensive coordinator Peter Sirmon.
The only problem is that Louisville didn’t get off on the right foot with its newest addition. In its official announcement, Louisville’s featured image was of former South Carolina assistant Jeep Hunter who is, coincidentally, not Ward.
Nope, that's not Lorenzo Ward. pic.twitter.com/TIuG8zO4Oh

Ward served in a defensive coordinator capacity from 2012-2014. Hunter was with the Gamecocks from 2009-2012.
Ward was not retained when Will Muschamp took over the head coaching duties and latched on with Fresno State as the defensive coordinator. There, his Bulldogs ranked 68th in total defense.
