History

Franz Kafka era (2013-2017)

The Georgia Bulldogs were one of the first schools to hire a head coach before the 2013 season. Franz Kafka coached the Bulldogs for five seasons, compiling a 52-16 record. During his initial tenure, Georgia went to five consecutive bowl games and were ranked 13th or higher in every Coaches Poll from 2013-2017. Their best season came in 2015, where Georgia won it's sole SEC Championship and earned a trip to the CFBHC Playoffs. In the Playoffs, Georgia defeated Pac-12 Champion Stanford in the Rose Bowl, before falling to Penn State in the National Semifinal. Following the 2015 Playoff campaign, Georgia won 10 games in both 2016 and 2017 before Franz Kafka retired from coaching.

TheCrimsonChin era (2018)

Following the departure of Franz Kafka, TheCrimsonChin was hired before the 2018 season. The Bulldogs finished the regular season with a 7-5 record and recorded their first losing season in conference play. Georgia ended the season with a victory over Florida State in the Weis Markets Bowl. TheCrimsonChin retired from coaching after the 2018 season.

Lasercats era (2019-2021)

Lasercats was hired to replace TheCrimsonChin and provide some stability to a program who was on its third coach in three years. Lasercats tenure was highlighted by the 2020 season where Georgia returned to the SEC Championship game for the first time since 2020 and defeated TCU in the Sugar Bowl. Lasercats left the program in the middle of the 2021 season after compiling a 21-11 record overall.

Franz Kafka era (2021-present)

Franz Kafka returned to Athens in the 2021 season after Lasercats' mysterious disappearance. Kafka, who had coached the Colorado Buffaloes from 2019-2021, was eager to return to his alma mater. The 2021 season marked Georgia's first 9-win regular season since 2017 and highest ranked recruiting class in school history (3rd).
