Kirby Smart had savage message for Dan Lanning after Georgia win

Dan Lanning may have helped coach Georgia’s defense to a national championship, but he is already being regarded as an enemy.

Lanning, who was previously the Georgia defensive coordinator, was introduced Thursday as the new head coach of the Oregon Ducks. Lanning shared that he received a note from Georgia head coach Kirby Smart after the championship to congratulate him on the win.

But Kirby also couldn’t help remind Lanning that he was now an opponent. Smart apparently had to give Lanning notice that he was getting the boot from Georgia’s staff member text message chain.

That’s brutal but efficient, sort of like how Georgia played defense in 2021, honestly.

Smart definitely prides himself on keeping his wits about him, even when he could justifiably be celebrating. That’s what he did at the end of the CFP semifinal.

Lanning is moving on, and so is the program he is leaving behind. Clearly there are no hard feelings about any of it.
