Georgia still on Jancek’s mind

University of South Florida coach Jim Leavitt probably never thought it would be this difficult to find a replacement for defensive coordinator Wally Burnham.
On Sunday, Georgia linebackers coach John Jancek and Colorado secondary coach Greg Brown became the latest assistants to turn down offers to come to USF.
Jancek, 40, has been Georgia’s linebackers coach since 2005. Jancek and Brown were originally being considered as co-defensive coordinators at USF, but Brown turned down the offer from Leavitt early Sunday to stay at Colorado.
After Brown’s decision, Leavitt offered Jancek the defensive coordinator’s position later in the day. By Sunday night, Jancek decided he would remain at Georgia.
On Feb. 1, Jancek received a 7.5 percent raise at Georgia and will earn $163,000 for the 2009-10 season, the Athens (Ga.) Banner-Herald reported.
Burnham, who was USF’s highest paid assistant last season, made $220,000. It’s unknown how much Leavitt will pay USF’s new coordinator or co-coordinators.
Leavitt also is seeking a replacement for secondary coach Troy Douglas, who went to North Carolina.
Jancek is the fifth individual to interview for either the coordinator or co-coordinator job by Leavitt, joining Brown, Illinois co-defensive coordinator Dan Disch, Nebraska linebackers coach Mike Ekeler and former Cincinnati defensive coordinator Joe Tresey. Iowa State secondary coach Chris Ash and East Carolina defensive coordinator Greg Hudson also have been considered.
