Georgia has officially hired their new defensive line coach, and it’s a good one.
Tracy Rocker, who coached the Tennessee Titans defensive line the last three seasons, is heading to Athens. Rocker played at Auburn and coached at Auburn, Ole Miss and Arkansas.
Rocker played defensive tackle at Auburn from 1986-88, before heading to the NFL with the Washington Redskins. He started his collegiate coaching career with West Alabama.
Rocker becomes the third different Georgia defensive hire. Jeremy Pruitt was hired as the new defensive coordinator, and Kevin Sherrer was brought in as a defensive assistant.
Rocker had a hand in developing Auburn’s Nick Fairley and Ole Miss’ Jeria Perry and Greg Hardy, and he’s a very strong hire for the Georgia Bulldogs.
There’s one more defensive assistant to be hired, who will also focus on special teams.
