Chris Wilson hired as UGA defensive line coach, per report

Scott Cunningham

The Bulldogs wasted little time finding a defensive line coach in hopes of getting ready for a potential championship run in 2013.

The Georgia Bulldogs have found their new defensive line coach in Chris Wilson, according to dogbytes.com.

Wilson, 44, comes over from Mississippi State, where he was holding the same position for the last three years, to replace Rodney Garner.

Wilson was also running the defense for Mississippi St. the past couple of seasons, but things haven't gone so well in recent times. Wilson wasn't given the opportunity to call defenses in the Gator Bowl, leading perhaps to his decision to join Georgia.

The one clear-cut advantage for the Bulldogs is Wilson coming over from a rival SEC school. The new d-line coach will know the opposition like the back of his hand instead of having to learn everything in the offseason strictly using game tape.

Wilson also has experience on the field, starring for the Oklahoma Sooners from 1988-91 and earning Big Eight honors as a second-team member for three seasons.
