ATHENS — University of Georgia secondary coach Scott Lakatos resigned his position due to personal reasons on Thursday, according to UGA head football coach Mark Richt.
"We are very appreciative of Scott's contributions to our program over the last four years and I have a great amount of respect for him as a coach and as a person," Richt said in a release. "We wish him and his family nothing but the best."
Lakatos joined the Georgia staff in January, 2010, after serving six years as secondary coach at the University of Connecticut.
Under Lakatos in 2013, the Bulldogs ranked sixth in the Southeastern Conference in pass defense, allowing an average of 229 yards passing per game.
