Mississippi State reportedly has offered its linebackers coach job to someone with NFL ties.

On Wednesday, Football Scoop’s Doug Samuels reported Bulldogs coach Joe Moorhead and defensive coordinator Bob Shoop have offered the program’s linebackers coach position to San Francisco 49ers defensive quality control coach Tem Lukabu. Lukabu has worked in the NFL for four seasons and two with San Francisco. He also spent time with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers from 2012-13.

Before his arrival in the NFL, Lukabu worked as a defensive assistant at Florida International, Colgate, Rhode Island and Rutgers, mostly as a linebackers coach. He also played linebacker at Colgate from 2000-03.
