Sources: Asst. Schumann returning to Georgia

Georgia co-defensive coordinator Glenn Schumann is returning to Athens after having multiple discussions with the Philadelphia Eagles and talking to recently for the protective coordinator job, sources told ESPN on Monday.Schumann took over the

protective playcalling duties last season at Georgia after Dan Lanning left for the Oregon head-coaching job following the 2021 season. The two-time safeguarding national champ Bulldogs completed 5th nationally last season in scoring defense(14.3 points per game). That’s regardless of losing a record five first-round choices on defense in the 2022 NFL draft. They were first nationally in hurrying defense(77 lawns per game )and 2nd in both red zone defense and third-down conversions.The Bulldogs had currently lost offending planner Todd Monken to the NFL when

he took the Baltimore Ravens’OC job two weeks back, so keeping Schumann was a coup for Georgia coach Kirby Smart.

Schumann was an undergraduate expert for the Tide from 2008 to 2011, then a graduate assistant from 2011 to ’14 and director of player development/associate director of player personnel from 2014 to’15. When Smart went to Georgia as head coach in 2016, he took Schumann with him as inside linebackers coach, and Schumann was promoted to co-defensive coordinator in 2019. Schumann is among 2 on-field assistant coaches Smart worked with on his preliminary personnel still with the Bulldogs, in addition to running backs coach Dell McGee.
