LSU has hired veteran college and pro coach Kevin Coyle as a defensive analyst, according to reports Monday.

Coyle, 62, has spent 17 years in the NFL, most recently as the defensive backs coach for the Cincinnati Bengals.

Cincinnati finished second in the NFL with 17 interceptions in 2016 and 20th last season with 11. Coyle and the Bengals parted ways in January.

He also coached for the Bengals from 2001-11 before joining the Miami Dolphins as defensive coordinator from 2012-15.

Coyle will work under third-year LSU defensive coordinator Dave Aranda. The Tigers began spring practice last weekend.

Before joining the pro ranks, Coyle was a defensive coordinator at Fresno State, Maryland, Syracuse and Holy Cross.
