Update: The AJC report is being refuted by other outlets:


Georgia defensive coordinator Dan Lanning is reportedly leaving the Bulldogs for a head coaching job. According to Chip Towers of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Lanning will be named the new head coach at Oregon on Monday.

Towers’ report leads off by addressing one of the biggest questions raised by Lanning’s departure:

Lanning and Georgia are negotiating whether the assistant coach will remain with the school through the College Football Playoff.

Georgia is ranked No. 3 after its SEC Championship Game loss to Alabama and is set to face No. 2 Michigan in the Orange Bowl, a CFP semifinal, on Dec. 31.

Lanning climbed the coaching ladder in his time at UGA, starting out as an outside linebackers coach making $325,000. This past season, Lanning made $1.7 million.
