Word on the street is that Alabama defensive coordinator Kirby Smart is leaving the program to become the next head coach at Georgia, his alma mater, but don’t ask Nick Saban to confirm that.

Kyle Burger of WVTM 13, a local NBC affiliate, posted the following video to Twitter.
Despite Saban’s frustration, all signs are pointing to Smart heading to Athens. He played at Georgia and served as an assistant there two separate times, so being the Bulldogs’ head coach would be the next logical step.
