Georgia special teams coordinator Scott Cochran has stepped away from the football program because of health issues, head coach Kirby Smart said Sunday. Per ESPN:

Former Florida and South Carolina head coach Will Muschamp, a senior defensive analyst with Georgia, will step in during Cochran's absence, a source told ESPN's Mark Schlabach.

"Coach Cochran is currently dealing with health issues and is taking time to prioritize his mental health and well-being," Smart said in a prepared statement. "We fully support him as he takes this time to focus on his well-being."
Chip Towers with AJC.com reported Monday that Cochran has actually been away from the team since mid-July.

Rumors circulated wildly this past weekend when observers noticed that the Bulldogs’ second-year special-teams coordinator was not present at the first two practices of preseason camp Friday and Saturday. The truth is, Cochran has been away from the Georgia football team since mid-July, persons with knowledge of the situation told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution Tuesday. Even before Smart and the Bulldogs took their turn at SEC Media Days, Cochran was seeking outside help.
Cochran was hired away from Alabama in February of 2020 after spending 13 years as head strength and conditioning coach in Tuscaloosa.
