5. Glenn Schumann, Georgia DC
If Texas A&M football is interested in substance over style, which it should be, then Georgia Co-defensive coordinator Glenn Schumann should be a serious candidate.
It might not win the press conference, but at the same time, haven’t the Aggies learned that winning the press conference doesn’t mean a whole lot?
Consider this: Kirby Smart had zero college football head coaching experience before Georgia took him away from Alabama. Now, he’s widely considered the best head coach in college football.
Dan Lanning, another Smart disciple, is also doing pretty well in Oregon. I’d still take my shot with Lanning, but if he says no, Schumann could be a chess move, while everyone else is playing checkers.
Is he going to be the next Smart? That’s hard to say. But you’d be taking a great coach away from Georgia, and at some point, Schumann is going to be a head coach. Why not take a shot on him now, knowing that Georgia DCs end up working out pretty well.
At least if recent history is any indication.
