UGA confirmed that this afternoon, but didn’t say if the assistant had been let go or left on his own. Rocker was named defensive line coach at Georgia on January 28, 2014. He stayed on during Kirby Smart's first season in Athens, but was said to have gotten into an argument with the mother of 5-star DL Aubrey Solomon, which pretty well ended the Bulldogs' chances of signing him. Kevin Sherrer is now the only coaching hold over from the Mark Richt era at UGA.

Rocker was not known for being an exceptional recruiter, but held his own. Still, he was known for development, and the Bulldogs' young defensive line played well as the season went on in Athens in 2016. According to reporting from Athens Banner-Herald, Rocker was in the first year of a two-year contract worth $525,000 per year.

One potential coach to keep an eye on in this coaching transition is Alabama LB coach Tosh Lupoi.
