Position: Defensive Backs

Former Clemson assistant coach Charlie Harbison was announced on Monday as the new outside linebackers coach and co-defensive coordinator at the University of Louisiana-Lafayette.

He was fired by Auburn back in January when they also let go veteran defensive coordinator Ellis Johnson.

"Number one, I'm blessed to be here,” Harbison said in a press release. “I love what Coach Hudspeth is doing here at Louisiana. He has built something special and I'm blessed to be a part of it. Coach Smith and I are like brothers. We're fortunate to have each other as friends and I want to do everything to help him and Coach Hudspeth to be the best that we can be. I want to come in, do my work and make sure the kids are coached well under my watch."

Harbison was the co-defensive coordinator and secondary coach at Clemson from 2009-2012 and was part of the team that won the ACC title back in 2011. He was also named one of Rivals.com top 25 recruiters back in 2010.

He also had an earlier coaching stint with Clemson as a secondary coach back during the 1995-1997 seasons.

His many college coaching stops have included Gardner-Webb, UTEP, Clemson, Alabama, LSU, Mississippi State and Auburn.
