Rocker served three seasons as Georgia’s defensive line coach and was named the team’s associate head coach starting in 2015. Smart thought so much of Rocker, he kept him on from former coach Mark Richt’s staff.
Known as an elite recruiter, some of the prospects Rocker landed at Georgia include current defensive linemen Trent Thompson, Jonathan Ledbetter, Julian Rochester, Michail Carter, Tyler Clark, and Malik Herring.
A native of Atlanta, Rocker played his college football at Auburn. During his playing career, Rocker was a two-time All-American and won the 1988 Outland and Lombardi Trophies.
