Head Coach, Georgia Bulldogs
Now the head coach of the Georgia Bulldogs, Kirby Smart looks to make a name for himself in the Southeastern Conference.
Since leaving the Miami Dolphins to join Nick Saban’s staff in Tuscaloosa prior to the 2007 season, Alabama’s defense has consistently ranked among the nation’s best in every major statistical category. Smart began his coaching career as an administrative assistant at Georgia in 1999 and spent six years on the collegiate level — Valdosta State (2000-01), Florida State (2002-03), LSU (2004) and Georgia (2005) — before departing for the NFL.
The 2009 Broyles recipient and 2012 AFCA Assistant Coach of the Year has led a suffocating Crimson Tide defense to three national championships during his tenure and the coveted title of the SEC’s best defense. Several of his players have won individual national awards and many have been picked in the early rounds of the NFL Draft.
The Georgia Bulldogs hired Kirby Smart December 7, 2015.
