ATHENS — New Georgia coach Kirby Smart has a lot of work to do.
Smart was introduced Monday as the Bulldogs’ 26th head coach at a news conference at the Georgia Center for Continuing Education on the UGA campus. But just as important is what the 39-year-old will do with the nine spots on his staff for assistant coaches.
Smart shied away from setting a deadline to fill out his staff.
“We don’t put a timetable on when we make those decisions,” Smart said. “It’s a very fluid situation. It’s constantly moving and changing. We don’t put timetables on anything. Right now, we’re worried about getting on the road, and recruiting, and trying to assemble staff and get as many people as we can.”
As of Monday morning, only one assistant coach had been hired by Smart. Glenn Schumann was a defensive analyst, also known as quality control specialist, and assisted with player development/player personnel for the Crimson Tide.
Great day to be a Georgia Bulldog!! Wheels up ✈️ #CommitToTheG
