LSU defensive backs coach Corey Raymond agreed to a new three-year contract with a significant raise, a source told The Advocate on Monday.

Raymond, currently under a contract paying him $375,000 a year, will make $400,000 in 2017, $425,000 in 2018 and $450,000 in 2019. The new deal is a two-year extension to his previous contract. 

Raymond agreed to the deal Monday, securing the former LSU defensive back's place on new coach Ed Orgeron's staff. Raymond is receiving a raise and extension for a third straight year. He signed a new contract last fall extending him through the 2017 season.

Raymond has been with LSU for the past five seasons. He's known as one of the country's best recruiters, continuously plucking highly touted defensive back prospects out of Florida. Raymond has signed consecutive No. 1-ranked defensive backs classes, according to 247Sports.com

Just two years ago, Raymond was the lowest-paid LSU assistant at $300,000 a year. He got a $10,000 bump and new two-year contract after the 2014 season.

This boost comes at a time when several Southeastern Conference programs are looking for a defensive backs coach, including SEC West rival Auburn. Former LSU defensive coordinator Kevin Steele is now at Auburn.
