Reports: S. Alabama DC bolts for job at UGA

Hey, at least he had been on the job for more than a week.

According to 247Sports.com and FootballScoop.comKevin Sherrer has decided to leave South Alabama to take a position on Mark Richt‘s Georgia coaching staff.  When it comes to his duties, the former website writes “Sherrer has not been assigned a title yet… while the Bulldogs wait for the remainder of the defensive staff to be assembled.”

Currently, the Bulldogs have openings for coaches of defensive backs and both inside and outside linebackers.

Sherrer and new UGA defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt have a previous working relationship.  Prior to moving on to the Seminoles for what turned out to be one season, Pruitt was a defensive assistant at Alabama while Sherrer served as the Tide’s director of player development.  Sherrer had replaced, of all people, Pruitt in that role as Pruitt was elevated to secondary coach by Nick Saban.

In January of last year, Sherrer left Alabama to take over as the defensive coordinator and defensive backs coach at South Alabama of the Sun Belt Conference.

    Coaches jump ship w/o any penalty but the same can’t be said for the kids playing the game. In a billion dollar industry it seems like everyone gets their cake and can eat it too save for the ones making it all possible. I have no respect for a coach who can’t commit himself to at least one year.
