Willie Fritz has secured two new assistants for his Tulane football coaching staff.

Robby Discher has left Georgia to become Tulane’s special teams coordinator, FootballScoop reported Monday.

Though not an on-the-field coach — his official title was special teams quality control coach — Discher was effectively the brains behind the national champions’ special teams operations.

Discher started his college coaching career in 2010 on Fritz’s Sam Houston State staff and worked his way up to special teams coordinator.

Gerald Chatman confirmed reports he is leaving his position as an analyst at LSU to coach Tulane’s defensive line.

The Wisconsin-Oshkosh alum coached the defensive line at his alma mater for two years (2010-11) before stints at five Division I schools as a graduate assistant or coaching defensive line.

From 2019-2020, Chatman worked for the Cincinnati Bengals as a defensive assistant. He was then hired as an analyst by Ed Orgeron at LSU in 2021 and then retained by new Tigers head coach Brian Kelly.
