The University of Georgia football program announced Thursday night that secondary coach Scott Lakatos resigned for personal reasons.
"We are very appreciative of Scott's contributions to our program over the last four years," Bulldogs coach Mark Richt said in a released statement, "and I have a great amount of respect for him as a coach and as a person. We wish him and his family nothing but the best."
Lakatos joined Georgia's staff in January 2010 after serving six seasons as secondary coach at Connecticut. The Bulldogs allowed 227.4 passing yards per game this season, their highest average since 2001.
