2013 NFL Draft: Kwame Geathers' decision doesn't hinge on coaching hire

Daniel Shirey-US PRESSWIRE

Kwame Geathers won't worry about when, or whom, Georgia picks as its new defensive line coach when deciding whether or not he'll enter the 2013 NFL Draft.

Georgia Bulldogs defensive tackle Kwame Geathers is still undecided on whether or not he'll enter the 2013 NFL Draft, but says that his decision will be independent of who the team hires as its new defensive line coach, according to Marc Weiszer of the Athens Banner-Journal.

Defensive coordinator Todd Grantham has hinted that the hire could come soon after Georgia's meeting with the Nebraska Cornhuskers in the Capital One Bowl, but is still looking at several "quality candidates," he told Weiszer. Grantham is tasked with replacing former D-line coach Rodney Garner, who held the position for 15 years and coached All-American linemen Richard Seymour and David Pollock, in addition to current UGA standouts Geathers and John Jenkins, who will miss the Capital One Bowl after being ruled academically ineligible.

Geathers, a 6'6, 346-pound junior from Georgetown, S.C., has 37 tackles, five of which resulted in lost yardage, and one sack on the season.
