Entering his second season as USU cornerbacks coach is Corey Raymond.
"Corey brings a great deal of coaching and playing experience to our program. He's a great teacher and a great technician. He's a high-energy coach and puts the players first, which is vital on my staff," Andersen said. "His college and professional experience will be beneficial to our players here at Utah State. He's also a terrific recruiter, and he has ties throughout Texas and Florida."
In 2009, Raymond coached Chris Randle, who was tied for fourth on the team and second among defensive backs with 53 tackles (38 solo, 15 assists). He registered a team-high seven pass break-ups, ranking sixth in the Western Athletic Conference. Randle was eighth overall in the league in passes defended with eight off seven pass break-ups and one interception, for a 0.58 passes defended per game average.
Raymond came to USU after three seasons at Louisiana State, where he worked with the LSU cornerbacks and their strength and conditioning program.
"I'm very happy to join a staff that is committed to turning this program around," Raymond said. "I hope I can pass on my knowledge, both as a player and as person, to help our players both in football and life. I've learned a lot as a professional player and a college graduate, and I intend to share that knowledge with the student-athletes of Utah State."
A six-year NFL player, Raymond was with the New York Giants from 1992-1995 and the Detroit Lions from 1995-1998. For his career, Raymond played in 90 games, registering 279 tackles, as well as snaring 11 interceptions, including one for a touchdown. He also had three sacks and one fumble return.
Raymond is a native of New Iberia, La., and he was a four-year starter at cornerback for LSU.
He began his coaching career in 2003 at New Iberia HS as secondary coach before becoming defensive coordinator and head strength and conditioning coach at Westgate High School in his hometown of New Iberia, La.
Raymond's coaching accolades include a 2007 internship with the Minnesota Vikings, part of the NFL's Minority Coaching Internship Program.
Raymond was in the personal business sector from 1999-2002
A 1992 graduate of LSU, Raymond earned his bachelor's degree in liberal arts.
He has four children: Chris, Cody, Madison and Ariel.
