Georgia assistant Kevin Sherrer expected to be with Bulldogs during playoff run

ATHENS — While Kevin Sherrer is leaving to coach at Tennessee, and has not been with Georgia during its first set of bowl practices, he is expected to return to the team and stay through its playoff run.

Sherrer, the outside linebackers coach the past four years, is set to become the defensive coordinator at Tennessee. He was not with Georgia during its weekend practices, outside linebacker Lorenzo Carter indicated. But Sherrer is expected to be back in Athens as soon as Monday.

“He will be out there with us,” Carter said.

Sherrer is leaving to become the defensive coordinator at Tennessee, for new Volunteers head coach Jeremy Pruitt. But Pruitt will remain with Alabama as defensive coordinator as it also prepares for the playoffs.

Sherrer had been at Georgia since 2014, and was the last holdover from the staff of former head coach Mark Richt.

“I’m proud of him,” Carter said of Sherrer. “I mean he’s been my coach for four years, all four years. I’m just excited he’s getting a chance to go do what he does.”
