More than 10 weeks after there officially was an opening for a defensive coordinator on Georgia’s football staff, there is finally clarity on who is filling the position.
Outside linebackers coach Dan Lanning was promoted to defensive coordinator and inside linebackers coach Glenn Schumann is co-defensive coordinator…
In addition, running backs coach Dell McGee now has the title ‘run game coordinator’ and will be paid $650,000 after a $100,000 raise. Wide receivers coach Cortez Hankton will be pass game coordinator and be paid $550,000 after a $175,000 raise. Offensive line coach Sam Pittman has added the title associate head coach and will be paid $900,000, a boost in pay of $75,000.
You know, a guy could feel left out if he didn’t get a title… except everybody got a raise, except for the new coach, of course, but he’s making more than one of the co-defensive coordinators, so that works out.
Speaking of working out, you know this has to warm the cockles of Greg McGarity’s benighted heart.
Georgia’s assistant coach salary pool will be less than last season—from $6.42 million to $6.045 million after Mel Tucker, who made $1.5 million annually, departed.
