The Georgia Bulldogs are losing defensive quality control coach Rod Ojong to the Buffalo Bulls. Buffalo, who lost in the Mid-American Conference (MAC) Championship last season, is replacing much of their coaching staff.

Former Buffalo Bulls head coach Lance Leipold took numerous assistant coaches from his days at Buffalo to his new job as the head coach at Kansas.

Rod Ojong helped Georgia have some of the best defenses in the country throughout his time in Athens. Ojong will be missed, but Georgia will be a very attractive destination for another defensive quality control coach. The Dawgs have one of the most advanced defensive schemes in all of college football.

Rod Ojong will coach safeties at Buffalo. He has previous coaching experience with Furman and Austin Peay.

Ojong thanked Kirby Smart and the Bulldogs’ defensive staff via his Twitter account:
