Georgia's coaching staff may look much different in 2022, per report
The Georgia Bulldogs are still riding high following their first national title since 1980; however, for college coaches, the work never stops.
That’s certainly true for Kirby Smart.
Defensive coordinator Dan Lanning has already left UGA for the Oregon head coaching job, and now, it seems that Georgia may also lose 2 more assistants: offensive coordinator Todd Monken and defensive backs coach Jahmile Addae.
College football insider Bruce Feldman shared the following information Thursday on Twitter.
“A couple of potential staff moves to keep an eye on at Georgia: OC Todd Monken may return to the NFL and DBs coach Jahmile Addae also could be moving on, per sources,” Feldman tweeted.
ESPN’s Adam Rittenberg also reported that Georgia could look to hire long-time SEC assistant Travaris Robinson as the defensive backs coach.
“Hearing Travaris Robinson is a candidate to join Georgia’s staff in a defensive backs role. He coached Miami’s DBs in 2021 and worked alongside co-defensive coordinator Will Muschamp at multiple SEC spots, including at South Carolina as defensive coordinator,” Rittenberg tweeted.
With Will Muschamp already on staff, it’s no surprise that he and Smart would look to bring in Robinson as an assistant. Robinson has coached alongside Muschamp at Florida, Auburn and South Carolina.
Monken leaving for the NFL, however, would be a much bigger story, and it would be a tough job for Smart to find another coordinator to run the Bulldogs offense as efficiently as Monken.
Urban Meyer always used to say that it’s much easier getting to the top than staying on it, and now, Georgia is entering uncharted waters in that respect. As coaches win, assistants get hired away for head coaching jobs and other positions.
