I have seen both forms in usage.
It's correct. Sometimes it sounds fine in both places. Bold if before, italics if after:
He quickly put on his shoes and left.
He put on his shoes quickly and left.
I ate greedily until my stomach literally exploded. I've been in the hospital for a few days trying to get it sewn back together.
The use of 'literally' here would sound strange if it were after the verb: "my stomach exploded literally". That changes the meaning, actually, from one of "it actually exploded" to "it exploded in a fashion related to letters/literature".
