With Tracy Rocker out as Georgia’s defensive line coach, one name you shouldn’t expect to hear as a potential replacement is former Georgia legend David Pollack.
While Pollack isn’t interested in the job at the moment, it’s not something to rule out forever. Whenever joked with about the opening by a fan on Twitter, Pollack said that coaching is in the cards for his future, but in “4-6 years.”
How'd you know that? Haha. It might happen but in 4-6 years. Coaching is in the plans for me. https://t.co/RY8uYkV6Gn

There’s hardly someone more qualified to coach a defensive line. Pollack started his career as an interior lineman before being bumped to defensive end as a sophomore in 2002. There, he recorded a Bulldogs’ record 36 career sacks and was a three-time All-American.
Since his football career ended in 2008 after a spinal injury, Pollack has jumped into the sports media world, most recently with ESPN’s College GameDay, where he’s worked since 2011.
