According to Football Scoop, Mel Tucker wants some familiar faces to follow him to Colorado.
Jay Johnson, who was on staff the past two seasons at Georgia, is expected to join Tucker’s staff as offensive coordinator source tells FootballScoop. Johnson, who previously served as offensive coordinator at Minnesota and Louisiana Lafayette, served as an offensive analyst / quality control at Georgia.
As for his defensive coordinator, sources tell FootballScoop Tucker offered the position to Georgia outside linebackers coach Dan Lanning. Lanning strongly considered the offer; but after quite some time, we’re told he has decided to turn down the opportunity. We truly understand this was back and forth and back and forth. All indications at this time are that the deal isn’t going to happen; but stranger things have.
Hope that’s all.
