That potential staff has a very Georgia 2014 feel to it. Sherrer, Friend and Rocker coached the outside linebackers, offensive line and defensive line respectively. At the end of that season Friend left Georgia to join Mike Bobo at Colorado State. Rocker and Georgia parted ways after National Signing Day in 2017.
Sherrer is not the first Georgia assistant to be linked to a job this season. Georgia defensive coordinator Mel Tucker was reportedly interviewed for the Tennessee job and wide receivers coach James Coley is a reported candidate to be Texas A&M’s offensive coordinator.
The Bulldogs will be playing in the College Football Playoff against Oklahoma. That game is scheduled for Jan. 1. Per another Chris Low report, Pruitt is expected to stay at Alabama through the College Football Playoff. Alabama takes on Clemson on Jan. 1.
