Former Georgia and Tennessee defensive coordinator John Jancek is reportedly joining Brian Kelly's new staff at LSU as a senior defensive analyst, according to Football Scoop.
Jancek was an analyst on Georgia’s national championship team this past season and previously worked with Kelly at Grand Valley State and then Central Michigan.
Multiple sources with direct knowledge tell FootballScoop that Kelly has brought in John Jancek, the former University of Georgia and University of Tennessee defensive coordinator, for a key senior defensive analyst role on Matt House’s LSU Tigers’ defensive staff.
Most recently an analyst on Georgia’s national-title winning squad, Jancek has a history with Kelly that stretches to their days together at Grand Valley State – where Kelly first rose to coaching prominence and to the highest levels in NCAA Division II football. It’s also where Jancek first began to cultivate his own reputation as a keen defensive assistant.
