LSU running backs coach Kevin Faulk isn’t expected to be on the sideline against Central Michigan on Saturday following the death of his daughter, coach Ed Orgeron said Wednesday.

Kevione Faulk died on Monday. She was a student worker in the football program. The cause of death is unknown. Faulk was 19.

“Right now, coach Faulk is with his family,” Orgeron said. “I told him to take his time and do whatever he needs to do.

“I don’t expect him to be here Saturday. I expect him to take his time and take care of his family first.”

The Tigers (1-1) host Central Michigan (1-1).

Kevin Faulk, LSU’s all-time leading rusher, returned to Baton Rouge as director of player development in 2018. He was promoted to running backs coach prior to the 2020 season. Faulk won three Super Bowls in his 13-year career with the New England Patriots.

A Lafayette native, Faulk was an All-American prospect out of Carencro High School. He led the Bears to the 1992 Class 5A state championship. 

“Obviously we put coach Faulk and his family first,” Orgeron said. “Everybody here is sick to their stomach. Feel bad for coach Faulk. He’s a great man with a great family and I can’t imagine the pain they’re going through.”
