One of the many position coaches that Georgia football head coach Kirby Smart had to replace this offseason was the defensive backs.

After Jahmile Addae left, the Dawgs hired Fran Brown, and he is already getting acquainted with his new program.

After bringing in such a dynamic recruiting class for the 2022 cycle, some may wonder if those who signed would stick around since Addae left the program.

Georgia football has a new defensive backs coach who knows how to fire up the players.

However, the Dawgs changed their recruiting by making sure these players built a relationship with other coaches. Will Muschamp and Smart are big-time recruiters when it comes to defensive backs, so that will likely help keep this talented group together.

Brown came in at a good time because now he could bond with those already on campus and the new signees joining the team. He can build the relationships it’ll take for them to learn from Brown and start building an elite secondary.

During the first couple of weeks of spring practice, the media brought up Brown during one of his press conferences, and Smart complimented the coach right away, and it seemed like he liked his decision.

The first thing that Smart said about Brown was that he is very charismatic. That trait is a great one to have because it keeps these young players intrigued.

"“Fran has done a tremendous job at establishing relationships. It was very evident when you talked to people that have worked on a staff with him about his charisma,” Smart said during a press conference. “I was very pleased with how hard he works, his relationships with the players, he is relentless on the road recruiting.”"

Smart went on to say that Brown is a rising star in this profession because of that energy. The way Smart talked about Brown, it’s clear that he is happy to have him as the defensive backs coach.

"“He is very coachable. He does what you ask of him and he doesn’t know he asks, that is important,” Smart said. “It is just as important to ask when you don’t know as it is to know. He has been really good thus far in that area.”"

Brown hasn’t been in Athens long, but it’s clear he wants to learn from the likes of Smart and Muschamp. He is still a student of the game as well, and the fact that Brown is so willing to learn will make him elite in the long run.

Smart is picky about who he hires to help run this program, and so far, Brown is proving to be a worthy addition.

Now it’s time to see how he recruits with Georgia’s budget and if he can land those big-time names the Dawgs need in their secondary. The Dawgs are slim in that position, so if he can add quality players, it’s only going to make him a bigger asset.

Next. Georgia football players that will send fans into a frenzy this spring. dark

Dawg fans should be excited about Brown and the charisma he brings to the program. He understands what Smart wants and is more than willing to try and produce it. There isn’t much more you can ask out of an assistant coach.
