Report: Mel Tucker bringing another Georgia assistant with him to Colorado
A couple of days ago, it was reported that former Georgia DC Mel Tucker was bringing Georgia quality control assistant Jay Johnson with him to Colorado to serve as his offensive coordinator.
It appears he’ll be bringing another Georgia staffer with him to the Pac-12, as Tyson Summers is expected to join his staff, too.
Per reports, Summers will be Colorado’s new defensive coordinator:

It’s interesting that Tucker is bringing two quality control assistants with him to Boulder and not going with more experienced guys, but it’s clear he trusts them and feels they are ready for bigger roles.
Summers was a defensive coordinator at Colorado State in 2015, so he has experience out west.
