“We are very appreciative of Scott’s contributions to our program over the last four years and I have a great amount of respect for him as a coach and as a person,” Richt said. “We wish him and his family nothing but the best.”
Lakatos joined the Georgia staff in January, 2010, after serving six years as secondary coach at the University of Connecticut.
Lakatos graduated from Western Connecticut in 1988 after earning four varsity letters on the gridiron, four of them under the tutelage of former Syracuse and current UCON head coach Paul Pasqualoni. The 1985 Colonial squad went 10-2 and advanced to the NCAA Division III Playoffs.
Immediately after earning his degree in Justice & Law Administration from WCSU, Lakatos began his coaching career at the Danbury school, working with the Colonials’ defensive backs during the 1988 and 1989 seasons. A native of Long Valley, N.J., Lakatos graduated from West Morris Central High School in 1983 where he played both linebacker and fullback, earning All-County honors on defense. He and his wife, Amanda, have a daughter, Sarah Bailey and a son, Cole.
