Former Georgia defensive line coach and associate head coach Tracy Rocker left the program back in February, and more details have started to emerge on what was apparently a dismissal by the Bulldog administration.
According to documents obtained by DawgNation, Rocker was fired from the program back on Feb. 7 following unspecified circumstances. Rocker will continue to draw a salary from Georgia for the rest of 2017 unless he takes a job with another program.
Georgia immediately hired Ole Miss coach Tray Scott to replace Rocker back in February.
Several reasons have been rumored for Rocker’s dismissal, including one that Rocker was reportedly involved in an argument with the mother of a five-star recruit. Rocker was also tied to a minor recruiting violation last year, but that is not believed to be the reason behind the firing.
Rocker, a former Outland Trophy winner at Auburn, has previously coached with the Tigers, as well as Ole Miss and Arkansas. He was originally hired by Georgia back in 2014 by then head coach Mark Richt.
