Newly-minted University of Louisiana Head Coach Billy Napier has tabbed a new defensive coordinator, and it's none other than Texas Tech's DBs coach Karl Scott.

Scott has experience as defensive coordinator after holding the position at Southeastern Louisiana. Scott also spent time at Louisiana Tech as their Safeties coach.

At Texas Tech, Scott was involved in a much-improved defense in 2017 that increased its turnovers from 13 to 29. The interceptions were up from five in 2016 to 14 in 2017. The passing yards also saw improvement, albeit minimal.

That leaves three open spots to fill on the Texas Tech coaching staff with the departure of Joe Robinson and the extra slot that will be added in January.
