ATHENS - The Georgia Bulldogs‘ co-defensive coordinator Glenn Schumann is getting interest from the NFL

That's according to sources inside the Bulldogs’ program, who said the Philadelphia Eagles are interested in Schumann.

One Georgia coordinator left the program just last week. Kirby Smart and the Dawgs quickly dealt with Todd Monken’s departure to the Baltimore Ravens by promoting Mike Bobo to offensive coordinator- a position he held previously under Mark Richt

Atlanta radio station 680 The Fan reported Wednesday that Schumann has interviewed with the Eagles. Dawg Post can not confirm that at this time.

However, UGA insiders confirmed that the Eagles have interest in Schumann. 32-years old, Schumann helped Smart's Georgia Bulldogs go 15-0 on the way to a second national title in-a-row. 

Schumann came with Kirby from Alabama when he left the Tide after the 2015 season to coach linebackers under Mel Tucker in 2016. 

Since that time Schumann has slowly risen to the top of Georgia's defense - running the show with Will Muschamp last fall. If Schumann were to leave for the NFL, Muschamp would be in line to be the sole defensive coordinator barring another promotion or hiring.

After an NFL-best 14-3 regular season record, the Eagles are coming off of a narrow loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in the Super Bowl, and are in search for both an offensive and defensive coordinator. Both of theirs earned head coaching positions elsewhere. Former defensive coordinator Jonathan Gannon left for the Arizona Cardinals.

Schumann would be reuniting with two players that were key to the 2021 Georgia Bulldog defense in Nakobe Dean and Jordan Davis. The Eagles hiring Schumann as defensive coordinator would also be a monumental jump. He spent just one season as a co-coordinator, but he was a big part of Georgia’s back-to-back championship run and generational defenses.
