BREAKING - per Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Georgia DC Dan Lanning to Leave and Become Next Oregon Head Coach

Recommended Posts

Breaking: Dan Lanning to leave Georgia to become Oregon head coach (ajc.com)

 

Georgia defensive coordinator Dan Lanning will be named the new head coach at Oregon on Monday, according to a person familiar with the situation.
 

Lanning and Georgia are negotiating whether the assistant coach will remain with the school through the College Football Playoff. Georgia will face Michigan in a semifinal Dec. 31. The winner of that game will play the winner of the Alabama-Cincinnati game in the other semifinal, the Cotton Bowl, for the national title Jan. 10 in Indianapolis.

 

Lanning started at Georgia as the outside linebackers coach in 2018 making $325,000 a year. After raising his salary several times as offers came from other schools, most recently the defensive coordinator position at Texas, he made $1.7 million this season.

 

The Oregon position become open when Mario Cristobal left for Miami earlier this week.

Lanning, who played at William Jewell College in Missouri, also coached at Pittsburgh, Arizona State, Sam Houston State, Alabama (where he was on the same staff as Georgia coach Kirby Smart) and Memphis. He was the inside linebackers coach and recruiting coordinator at Memphis from 2016-17 before coming to Georgia.

 

As for Georgia’s staff, inside linebackers coach Glenn Schumann holds the title of co-defensive coordinator. Also, former South Carolina coach Will Muschamp is on staff as special-teams coordinator and assists with defensive backs. Muschamp also served as defensive coordinator at Auburn LSU and Texas.

Lanning’s compensation has increased 540% in four years at Georgia.


“I’m forever grateful to coach Smart for giving me the opportunity to coach at the University of Georgia,” Lanning said in August following the pay raise. “It’s always been a dream of mine to coach the elite and to have the opportunity to compete for championships at the highest level. I think Georgia provides that.”
 
Rewards such as Lanning has received do not come unwarranted. The $1 million of increases Lanning has received over the past two years are listed as “competitive” raises on Georgia’s accounting ledgers. Each came as a result of Lanning being offered work elsewhere.

Mike Norvell, for whom Lanning worked at Memphis, tried to hire him away to Florida State before last season. And new Texas coach Steve Sarkisian took a shot at acquiring Lanning in January.
 

“It’s competitive, and when you’re at a good program, you’re going to have good opportunities,” the 35-year-old Lanning, who is married and has three sons, said before the season. “But the grass is not always greener, and I learned that from watching coach Smart for several years. You know, being successful where you’re at, opportunities will come.”

Well, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution would be considered a reliable source.

UCLA fans right now... "dammit" 😄

 

I'll have to do a bit of research cause i'm not familiar with him at all but I do like the idea of hiring someone young and apparently rising rapidly.

Good Lord.  Sorry for the click bait, guys.  I figured the AJC was a reliable source.  Live and learn.

It seems as if the St. Petersburg troll factory is seeking to sow disinformation on the Oregon head coaching search. Don't they have anything worse to do?

I wouldn't say it's click bait, AJC is a major news paper and the author covers the bulldogs

Until, Mullens sits in front of cameras, I ain't buying the Bridge to "No where" they trying to sell.  All it's doing is causing issues with TRUST.  We have enough of that in Politics and Media already, Do not need no more.

Who knows if this is true or not but if it is it would be awesome. Keeping teams under twenty alone would win the the Pac 12. Throw in a top notch O Coordinator and the Ducks would be regular playoff contenders.

Definitely true that the AJC is a major newspaper.  Just a little jumpy after all of the reports, rumors, and innuendo.  The report of a premature hire might be semantics, that they're still working out the details before an official offer or acceptance is made.  Much mahalos

If you want to parse Matt Prehm's tweet, you could note that he says, "The report of Dan Lanning being hired today...".

 

One could interpret that as meaning Dan Lanning is being hired, just not today.

 

Or, maybe Prehm meant to put the "today" after "report", changing the meaning to Lanning not being hired.

 

Personally, I think it's going to be Woody Hayes.

Who Knows? Off the wall but if the guy worked for Saban and Smart he has to be able to recruit.

Thanks for the support, Charles and especially for the avatar! We LOVE Marcus here in the islands.  His parents came to our UOAA-Hawaii Chapter annual fundraisers a few times along with DeForest's mom.  

 

Glad to be here, mahalo and aloha!
