BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - LSU coach Johnny Jones says he has hired former UCLA assistant coach Korey McCray as an assistant with the Tigers.
McCray replaces assistant coach Robert Kirby who last month left to take a job on another staff.
The 34-year-old McCray has spent the past two seasons on UCLA's staff and was with Mercer, his alma mater, during the 2007-08 season.
Jones, who is entering his second season as LSU's head coach, says he expects McCray to help significantly with recruiting and with player development.
McCray helped UCLA bring in a 2012 recruiting class that was rated by many analysts as one of the best in the nation. He also was part of a Bruins staff that won the Pac-12 conference and appeared in the NCAA tournament this past season.
