BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) LSU says Bradley Dale Peveto is part of head coach Les Miles' staff again.

Peveto, whose hiring was announced Thursday, was the special teams coordinator and a defensive assistant on LSU's 2007-08 national championship team.

He then spent one season as a co-defensive coordinator, then left to take the head coaching at Northwestern State of the second-tier Football championship Subdivision. After four seasons with the Demons, Peveto spent last season as special teams coordinator at Kentucky.

Miles says he's pleased to have Peveto back, both for his knowledge of special teams and for his experience as a recruiter. Miles says Peveto's ties to Texas and Georgia will help LSU with recruiting in those states.


Peveto says he loves LSU's football tradition and compares rejoining the Tigers to coming home.
