Jack Curtis has been named as defensive coordinator for Georgia Southern. He replaces Brent Pry who was hired as the co-defensive coordinator at Vanderbilt.
“Jack shares the philosophy of what our team does,” said GSU coach Jeff Monken. “His experience and success at other programs with this defensive scheme provides our team with continuity on that side of the ball. He is an exceptional teacher and our program will benefit from his knowledge and approach. We’re excited about Jack being here at Georgia Southern.”
Curtis spent the last year at Central Missouri as the defensive coordinator during UCM’s Division II playoff run. Central Missouri posted a program-best 11 wins and finished the 2010 season with a No. 5 ranking, the highest in Mules’ history.
Curtis joined UCM after a year at Memphis where he coached the safeties and special teams.
