Georgia hires Matt Luke as new offensive line coach
Georgia has made one of the better assistant coaching hires of this coaching carousel.
Following Sam Pittman’s decision to leave Georgia and take the Arkansas head coaching job, Kirby Smart had a huge hole to fill coaching his offensive line, both in development and recruiting, and Georgia hired former Ole Miss head coach Matt Luke to fill the vacancy.
Luke was fired as Ole Miss’ head coach following the Egg Bowl debacle. He compiled a 15-21 overall record as the head coach of the Rebels. Luke’s background and history is coaching offensive lines.
He played center for the Rebels from 1995-98, and he’s coached the offensive line at four different programs. Luke took over the interim head coaching job when Ole Miss and Hugh Freeze parted ways, and he became the permanent head coach following the 2017 season.
Luke is certainly known throughout the Southeast, and he is a very solid replacement for Pittman.
Georgia already has a loaded offensive line, and its recruiting class boasts some of the best offensive linemen in the nation.
