Well, the UGA nation is waiting on Kirby Smart to make a decision. Will he leave Alabama to become the next defensive coordinator of the Georgia Bulldogs?
Reports indicate that Smart has been offered the position and that he could make at least double the $360,000 he earned last season with the Crimson Tide.
If Smart turns Georgia down and remains at Alabama, the Dawgs may look towards Dallas Cowboys defensive line coach Todd Grantham. Last month, Mark Richt targeted Virginia Tech’s Bud Foster and LSU’s John Chavis. Both DC’s opted to remain at their respective schools.
Back to Kirby Smart, he would be a “home run” hire if the Dawgs can land him. He is one of the hottest assistants in college football and he won the Broyles Award, which goes to the nation’s top assistant.
We should know something this afternoon. What do you think Kirby Smart will decide?
