Matt Luke hired as offensive line coach at Georgia

It didn’t take long for the former Ole Miss head coach to find new work.

Just nine days after being relieved of his duties at Ole Miss, the University of Georgia announced Tuesday that Matt Luke would join the Bulldogs staff as an offensive line coach.

The move comes on the heels of former Georgia offensive line coach Sam Pittman leaving Kirby Smart’s staff to become the head coach at Arkansas.

“He’s a proven football coach who has a wealth of experience on the offensive side of the ball, especially in the offensive line,” Smart said in a statement released by Georgia. “He has a great reputation among those who have played for him, and it’s obvious watching his teams over many years that players love him and play hard for him.”
