Jabbar Juluke quickly found a new home — his old one.

Juluke, the former LSU running backs coach who was reassigned last week, is rejoining the Texas Tech staff, the school announced Tuesday. Juluke joined the Tigers last spring after spending just a few days with coach Kliff Kingsbury at Tech.

Juluke will coach running backs and serve as associate head coach for the Red Raiders. 

New coach Ed Orgeron reassigned Juluke last week, moving him into an unannounced off-the-field position. Orgeron fired receivers coach Dameyune Craig on the same day. 

Juluke, a New Orleans native, has more than a year left on his contract, and LSU was expected to owe him his base salary of $275,000 this year. The Tigers' payments will be offset by his new salary. 

"I'm excited to join the staff Coach Kingsbury has assembled," Juluke said in a statement released by Tech. "Coach Kingsbury is very highly respected as one of the top offensive coaches in the country, so I'm looking forward to building on Texas Tech's success the past few seasons."
