Kirby Smart and Georgia football will have a new-look coaching staff for the 2022 college football season. The Bulldogs, like many national champions, are having to replace key members of the coaching staff.
Additionally, several of Georgia’s assistants have been promoted into larger roles. The changes typically come with salary boosts.
Here’s a look at how Georgia’s coaching staff has changed this offseason:
