LSU will interview Georgia receivers coach Tony Ball on Wednesday for its staff opening, according to ESPN Radio in Baton Rouge.
Ball, 55, just finished his ninth season at Georgia, the last six as receivers coach. Ball makes $260,000 a year and is one of a four current UGA assistants who has not received a raise this offseason. He has one year left on his contract.
A Chattanooga, Tenn., native, Ball was a running back at UT-Chattanooga and coached running backs in his first three years in Athens. Ball coached receivers at Virginia Tech before moving to Georgia.
LSU has been searching for a new coach since Sunday. This is the first known interview for the position, and whoever is hired will be the third new coach on staff. The Tigers hired former Alabama assistant Kevin Steele to be their defensive coordinator after John Chavis left. They hired defensive line coach Ed Orgeron to replace the reassigned Brick Haley.
Henry, 42, had recently signed a new two year contract with the Tigers that included a $55,000 raise. He was set to make $375,000 this season.
