Will Muschamp has reportedly taken his talents to the University of Georgia.
According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the former South Carolina coach is working for Kirby Smart at Georgia in an unknown role. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)
Smart and Muschamp both come from Nick Saban’s coaching tree.

While South Carolina and Florida fans might not want to hear this, Muschamp is a very solid defensive coach.
Clearly, he leaves a lot to be desired when it comes to being a head coach, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t know his Xs and Os on the defensive side of the ball.

Seeing as how Muschamp and Smart know each other, teaming up in Athens is far from the worst idea. It doesn’t look like there’ll be a DC opening, but Muschamp could spend some time as a position coach or analyst.
The reality of the situation is that Georgia will be very solid in 2021, and Muschamp will get another shot at a head coaching position.
He might as well bind his time at one of the best programs in the SEC.
