ATHENS — Georgia has finally announced the hiring of Glenn Schumann, but it still hasn’t said what position he will coach.
In conjunction with two other hires, head coach Kirby Smart said Saturday that Schumann, who has been with the team for nearly a week, will be in a “defensive staff position.”
That indicates still some flux on the defensive staff, where no other hires have been made official, nor have any current assistants been announced as retained or dismissed.
Schumann had been with Smart the past six years in an off-field role. He has been recruiting for the Bulldogs practically since Smart was officially announced as coach last Sunday.
“Glen did an outstanding job in several areas during his eight years at Alabama and he’ll be a great addition to our staff,” Smart said in a statement.
Schumann was born in Valdosta, where his father Eric was an assistant coach at the time. Eric Schumann spent 20 years as a defensive coordinator, and was a safety at Alabama in the 1970s. Glenn Schumann’s grandfather, Jack Haskin, was a coach at Florida State and is a member of that school’s Hall of Fame.
