LSU’s wide receivers coach Adam Henry has decided to return to the NFL, taking a job with the San Francisco 49ers as the team’s wide receivers coach.

Henry was in the job for two years after moving to Baton Rouge for five years with the Oakland Raiders, where he was offensive quality control coach and then tight ends coach.

Under his watch, Odell Beckham and Jarvis Landry were major difference-makers for the LSU and then in their rookie years in the NFL with the New York Giants and Miami Dolphins.

This is the latest coach to leave Les Miles this off-season after the LSU head coach lost long-term DC John Chavis to Texas A&M.

Henry is not the only position coach in the SEC to vault for the SEC. Florida’s defensive line coach Terrell Williams bolted for Miami just after National Signing Day, prompting CeCe Jefferson to delay his LOI to the Gators, and Arkansas’ running backs coach Joel Thomas has reportedly gone to New Orleans.

OUR TAKE: LSU will find another wide receivers coach pretty easily. But what is it about position coaches leaving for other jobs just after National Signing Day?
