Sources: Unconventional candidate interviews for Georgia defensive backs job

Charlton Warren is now Indiana's defensive coordinator, and Georgia is on the hunt for a new defensive backs coach.

The Georgia staff is deep in the interview process, and one unconventional candidate has sat for multiple interviews. Glenn Ford is a candidate to become Georgia's defensive backs coach, sources tell FootballScoop.

Ford is the chairman and CEO of the iDareU Academy in Atlanta. Ford founded the academy in 2006 which, according to its website, has placed over 400 clients with college programs, earning $40 million in scholarship money. iDareU lists 24 NFL players as former clients, including former Alabama safety Minkah Fitzpatrick and former Clemson cornerback AJ Terrell.

Ford's iDareU Academy bio:

Ford is known by many as a “DB GURU” and has earned the reputation of an outstanding tactician, organizer, motivator, and leader. These qualities and his vision have garnered the attention of colleges across the United States. Ford’s consistent approach and disciplined leadership are the reasons that athletes from iDareU are known for their determination, resilience and grit, and, oftentimes, iDareU's athletes overshadow others at college camps and workouts.

Ford played defensive back at Georgia alongside Kirby Smart and spent 2019 as a Bill Walsh Minority Fellow with the Cleveland Browns.

Ford has interviewed with multiple members of the Georgia staff including Dan Lanning and Kirby sources share. An interesting note, we are also told Will Muschamp sat in on one of the Zoom calls.

Sources tell FootballScoop Georgia has at least one more candidate to interview before they make a decision.
