A defensive personnel note

Jeremy Longo, a reserve defensive end, is ending his career because of knee injuries, according to UGA. The decision was reached after consulting with doctors and head coach Mark Richt.

Longo, a redshirt junior, plans to stay around the team as a volunteer coach, assistant defensive coordinator Todd Grantham.

The Fort Lauderdale, Fla., native appeared in four games last year, mostly on special teams. He played in three games as a redshirt freshman in 2009.

The situation is similar to Quintin Banks last year. Banks, a senior, retired because of chronic injuries but stayed around the team as a volunteer assistant.

(Note: UGA has confirmed the news, which was originally attributed to a source, so I've amended the first paragraph to reflect that.)

Wish Longo the best. Not to be Sabanic, but does this open a scholarship up for this or next season?
