The Tigers are expected to announce the hiring of Washington Redskins' assistant coach Jerry Gray as their new head coach.
Gray interviewed this week and was a finalist for the position along with LSU running backs coach Larry Porter.
The announcement, assuming there are no unforeseen developments, is not expected to come until after Memphis has played its final game under outgoing coach Tommy West.
The Tigers play their final game of the season at Tulsa on Friday.
