Georgia reportedly adds staffer that's previously won multiple coordinator of the year honors
How high of a level is Kirby Smart’s Georgia program currently running at?
Well, the Dawgs have reportedly managed to get a full-time assistant to leave a program that just finished in the top 15 of the final AP Poll to become an analyst in Athens.
Georgia’s special teams unit looks to be getting better heading into spring practice as Louisiana special teams coordinator Robby Discher is leaving Billy Napier’s program to become a special teams analyst in Athens according to Chris Vannini of The Athletic.
Discher will work with Scott Cochran to manage Georgia’s special teams.
If you aren’t familiar with Discher, he is considered a rising star in the coaching world as he’s previously been named Special Teams Coordinator of the Year by FootballScoop in 2014 for the work he did under Mike Gundy at Oklahoma State. Incredibly, Discher achieved this while serving as a graduate assistant that season.
Discher next found a job at Toledo working for Jason Candle as the program’s special teams coordinator and tight ends coach. During his time at Toledo, Phil Steele named Discher the Special Teams Coordinator of the Year for 2018 after the unit ranked No. 1 nationally efficiency by Steele’s metrics.
Interestingly, Discher graduated from William Jewell College in 2009, one season after Georgia defensive coordinator Dan Lanning graduated from the school.
