Georgia assistant reportedly leaving Kirby Smart's coaching staff to take Indiana defensive coordinator position
The offseason coaching carousel shows no signs of slowing down at the moment and now comes word that Kirby Smart’s Georgia program has been affected by all the movement in the coaching world.
It appears the Bulldogs have a new opening on the team’s coaching staff as defensive backs coach Charlton Warren is reportedly leaving after two seasons on staff to become the new defensive coordinator for Indiana.
News of Warren’s departure was first reported by ESPN’s Adam Rittenberg.
“Sources: Indiana is set to hire Georgia defensive backs coach Charlton Warren as its next defensive coordinator. Warren has coordinator experience at Air Force (2008 to 2013) and has coached DBs at North Carolina, Tennessee, Florida and Nebraska. Replaces Kane Wommack,” Rittenberg reported on Sunday.
Warren has coached defensive backs in Athens since the 2019 season after serving one season at Florida and one season at Tennessee. Warren also has experience coaching at North Carolina, Nebraska and Air Force (his alma mater).
The Indiana defensive coordinator position became open this offseason after Kane Wommack took the South Alabama head coaching position.
Warren’s departure would represent the first full-time Georgia staffer to leave Smart’s program this offseason.
