For the second time in as many weeks, a Duke football assistant has taken a position at a bigger program.
Leon Wright, Duke's defensive quality control assistant coach, is headed to join Les Miles's staff at LSU as a graduate assistant. He will work with the defensive backs.
Wright, who played cornerback at Duke from 2006-09, was an honorable mention all-ACC pick in 2009.
On Sept. 12, 2009, Wright became the first player in school history to score two touchdowns off of interceptions in the same game. Both returns came 16 seconds apart in the fourth quarter of Duke's 35-19, come-from-behind victory over Army.
Wright had been in his current position since 2011. He signed a free-agent contract with the New York Giants in 2010.
Last week, graduate assistant Vince Oghobaase, also a Duke alum, took the same position at Ohio State. There aren't any obvious replacements for either departed coach.
