Georgia football-Matt Luke-official statement
Matt Luke has an interesting task in 2021. His best unit for the first game will likely not be his best group by the end of the season. It depends on how fast some very talented young ‘Pups can come on. (UGAAA)

Georgia football coach Kirby Smart extends contracts of 3 assistant coaches

ATHENS — Georgia football coach Kirby Smart extended the contracts of co-defensive coordinator Glenn Schumann, offensive line coach Matt Luke and defensive line coach Tray Scott.

Schumann and Scott have been extended through 2023, per an AJC.com report, while Luke’s contract runs through 2024. There were no raises for the three coaches announced in relation to their contract extensions.

UGA ranked 5th in the SEC and 56th in the nation in rushing last season,

Defensive coordinator Dan Lanning received a giant $475,000 raise earlier this offseason, his salary now at $1.7 million as he enters this third campaign leading the Bulldogs’ defense.

The Bulldogs led the nation in rushing defense last season and finished 12th in scoring defensive (second in the SEC), 16th in scoring defense (second in the SEC) and 56th in pass efficiency defense (fourth in the SEC) last season.

Lanning, who coaches the outside linebackers, helped develop 2019 Freshman All-American Azeez Ojulari, who was the 50th overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. Ojulari led the SEC in sacks and tackles for loss last season.

Georgia set a school record for most players selected in one draft, despite some of their draftees carrying injuries in to the NFL draft process.
