It was a busy Wednesday for Georgia Bulldogs news. Here’s the latest on what’s happening, starting with more legal trouble for the Dawgs. 

Star linebacker Jamon Dumas-Johnson was arrested on Wednesday facing charges of racing on streets and reckless driving. Duman Johnson was booked and later released from the Athens-Clarke County jail. There has been a statement of acknowledgment from the university, but nothing directly from Kirby Smart.

Yet another Georgia assistant coach is being targeted by an NFL team. After losing offensive coordinator Todd Monken to the Baltimore Ravens, the Philadelphia Eagles are reportedly set to interview co-defensive coordinator Glenn Schumann for their vacant DC spot. Schumann has been with Georgia since 2016, starting as a linebackers coach, and moving up to co-defensive coordinator when Dan Lanning left to take the Oregon head coach job.

The National Champion Georgia Bulldogs football team will visit the White House and meet President Joe Biden. The invitation was finally extended to the Dawgs on Wednesday after a lot of speculation as to whether or not they’d be invited.

The Georgia 2024 recruiting class got another boost, as lightning-fast wide receiver Ny Carr out of Colquitt County said this week that he’s “100% locked in” with the Bulldogs. Carr has been committed to Georgia since mid-2022 but did take unofficial visits elsewhere this year. His announcement on Twitter says that he’s completely shut down his recruiting.

One new coach has been added to the football staff, with Kirby Smart hiring Jeremy King out of  Valdosta State University as a graduate assistant offensive line coach.

Former Louisville and Kentucky head basketball coach Rick Pitino could be making a return to big-time college basketball. The embattled coach has recently had his name cleared from an investigation stemming from issues at Louisville. Pitino says he would like to coach for 5-6 more years. He’s currently heading up the Iona Gaels program but could be a target for some big openings in 2024.

Nick Saban will have another coaching vacancy to fill. Just nine days after announcing Austin Armstrong as his new linebackers coach, the former Southern Miss defensive coordinator took the vacant DC job at Florida. Armstrong first worked with the current Florida head coach Billy Napier as a graduate assistant at Louisiana in 2018.
