Report: Schumann Stays At Georgia
Dawgs DC Elects Stays in Athens After Birds DC Interview
The Philadelphia Eagles’ defensive coordinator search continues to narrow.
After interviewing with the Eagles last week, Georgia Bulldogs co-defensive coordinator Glenn Schumann has reportedly decided to remain with the back-to-back national champions, per ESPN’s Chris Low.
Glenn Schumann, after interviewing for the Philadelphia Eagles’ DC job, is returning to @GeorgiaFootball, sources tell ESPN. That’s big news for the Dawgs. Schumann was co-DC and called plays last year for two-time defending champs. Georgia had already lost OC Todd Monken to NFL.

The 32-year-old has had massive success with the Bulldogs, winners of the last two national championships and boasting the nation’s best defense, with several players drafted in the first round.
ITB’s Geoff Mosher reported that the Eagles were impressed by him during the interview process.
In the past year, Philadelphia drafted Jordan Davis and Nakobe Dean, both key players for Schumann’s championship defense in 2021.
The Eagles now set their sights toward other candidates.
Seattle Seahawks Associate Head Coach Sean Desai is reportedly flying into Philadelphia for a second interview. Current Eagles defensive backs coach Dennard Wilson remains a candidate and has received vocal support from Eagles players.
Others who interviewed for the Eagles’ post are University of Michigan defensive coordinator Jesse Minter and former Los Angeles Rams pass defensive coordinator/defensive backs coach Chris Shula.
