Mel Tucker officially hired as Georgia Bulldog defensive coordinator

Marvin Gentry-USA TODAY Sports

The worst-kept secret in college football hiring since Georgia's targeting of Kirby Smart is a secret no longer. Alabama defensive backs coach Mel Tucker is now officially onboard as Georgia's new defensive coordinator. As I noted last week, I'm tentatively putting aside my suspicions that Tucker might be a carrier of NFLmediocre-itis. I do know that as long as Deshaun Watson doesn't transfer to Auburn, I like what this should mean for Bulldog defensive backs. Until later . . .

Go 'Dawgs!!!!
