Georgia may be bringing another Auburn coach on to its staff, this time as a defensive assistant to replace Jahmile Addae, who left for the same position at Miami.

Auburn DB coach Zac Etheridge a top candidate for the open DB position at Georgia, according to Justin Hokanson of On3 Sports. Etheridge, a team captain on Auburn’s 2010 national championship team, was in his first season coaching at Auburn after he spent the previous 2 seasons in the same capacity at Houston.

Before Houston, Etheridge spent a season at Louisiana, where he helped lead the Ragin Cajuns to a spot in both the Cure Bowl and the Sun Belt Conference Championship. Etheridge spent 2 seasons at Western Carolina from 2016-17, where he coached the cornerbacks in 2016 and then was elevated to a full-time position as an assistant coach with his focus switching to WCU’s outside linebackers in 2017.

His coaching career began as a graduate assistant coach at Penn State under head coach Bill O’Brien, followed by 2 years as a defensive graduate assistant at Georgia Tech where he worked closely with the secondary, according to his Auburn bio.

A four-year starter at Auburn, Etheridge broke his neck during his junior season in 2009 against Ole Miss. Then, 9 months later, after extensive rehabilitation, Etheridge returned to the starting lineup for Auburn and captained his team along a memorable run to the national title at the end of the 2010 season, finished second on the team with 69 tackles, with 3 interceptions and a fumble returned 47 yards for a touchdown against Arkansas.
