Georgia hires ex-Ole Miss coach Matt Luke as OL assistant

ATLANTA — Georgia hired former Mississippi coach Matt Luke on Tuesday to oversee its offensive line, less than two weeks after he was fired by the Rebels.

Luke will also serve as offensive line coach and associate head coach on Kirby Smart's staff, filling the void left by the departure of Sam Pittman to become Arkansas' new head coach.

The 43-year-old Luke has a long history of coaching the offensive line at Ole Miss, Duke, Tennessee and Murray State, in addition to serving as co-offensive coordinator at both Duke and Ole Miss.

"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.
