Auburn WR Coach Dameyune Craig Leaving for LSU

AUBURN, AL — Auburn is losing another assistant coach, and this time he is going to the LSU Tigers.

Wide receivers coach Dameyune Craig is leaving to take the same position as LSU. Craig was considered one of Auburn’s best recruiters.

This is the fifth assistant coach to leave Auburn since the end of the regular season. Craig was a graduate assistant with LSU in 2004.

Dameyune Craig released this statement:

“I want to thank the Auburn family for all of their love and support over the years. My decision to make this career move is in no way a reflection of Auburn or the Auburn family. It is strictly a professional decision. It’s about growing as a coach and, hopefully, one day becoming a head coach. Auburn has played a pivotal role in my professional and personal life. Words can’t express how grateful I am to the Auburn family and all of the incredible people who are part of that wonderful community. I will forever be indebted to the opportunities that Auburn gave me.”

Gus Malzahn released this statement:

“I want to thank Dameyune for his contributions during the last three years and wish him and his family nothing but the best. We will work quickly to search for his replacement.”
