Josh Gattis describes the Nick Saban effect on Georgia, where Michigan can attack the defense
Josh Gattis is the latest offensive coordinator to prepare to move the ball against Georgia, and the Michigan assistant said ahead of the Orange Bowl that there are opportunities.
“Looking at the film we feel like we know areas they can be attacked, and we’re going to do our best to keep attacking those areas,” Gattis said Monday at a media availability. “We’ve got some of the most dynamic players in the entire country.”
Michigan is getting settled in the Miami area, and Gattis said he was “blown away” by how fast and explosive Michigan’s offense looked in its first South Florida practice. Gattis added that they’re used to practicing in cold weather and now can think a little more creatively.
Gattis, a former Alabama assistant, is familiar with Kirby Smart and Dan Lanning from their days also coaching with the Crimson Tide. He said it’s not exactly a Nick Saban defense, and that Smart and Lanning have put their own stamp on the Georgia defense.
