So, a couple of notes from this Mike Griffith piece on the staff opening resulting from Charlton Warren’s departure:
- “Warren and receivers coach Cortez Hankton were the only two UGA returning on-field coaches not to get raises following the 2019 season.”
- “Sources have indicated Smart is looking for more of a players’ coach to take over the secondary.”
Somehow, I don’t think Warren got dinged for not being enough of a players’ coach. A quick check of the 247Sports 2021 recruiter rankings doesn’t show Warren’s name in the top 250. I’m guessing that matters more to Kirby than how buddy buddy the secondary coach is with his players.
