ATHENS, Ga. (WTVA) - Georgia has hired former Ole Miss head football coach Matt Luke as the Bulldogs’ associate head coach and offensive line coach.

The university's athletics department made the announcement on Tuesday.

Matt Luke's tenure as head football coach began in July 2017.

Ole Miss fired Luke on Dec. 1, a few days after the Rebels lost to rival Mississippi State on Thanksgiving Day.

Prior to being named the Rebels’ interim head coach in July 2017, Luke coached the offensive line.

He played center for Ole Miss in the 90s.

Former Georgia offensive line coach, Sam Pittman, was recently named head coach at Arkansas.
