Udeze, 36, was a defensive lineman at USC and was a first-round pick by the Vikings in 2004. He retired in 2008 after being diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
Udeze has worked in coaching since 2009 and was a part of USC’s staff from 2015-2018. He was a defensive line coach for three of those seasons and spent this past season with LSU, working under Ed Orgeron, who was his defensive line coach at USC.
