Matt Bucklin begins his fourth season on the Georgia staff and eighth-straight campaign with Bulldog Basketball, continuing an association he began with the team as a walkon guard in the fall of 2008.
    
The Marietta, Ga., native served as a graduate assistant with the Bulldogs for two seasons from 2012-14 and was then promoted to his current position in July of 2014. Bucklin directs a number of tasks, including the players’ day-to-day schedules and their academic performance, as well as assisting with the program’s on-campus recruiting efforts, summer camps and community outreach.
    
Bucklin played four seasons (2009-12) for Georgia as a reserve point guard. He originally joined the team as a walk-on before being awarded a scholarship for his junior and senior years. Bucklin played in 26 contests during his career and earned his first career start for the Bulldogs’ in the final home game of his senior season against South Carolina. He scored his first career points on an old-fashioned three-point play against LSU. Bucklin also was a prominent trick-shot artist on teammate Connor Nolte’s block, Passer’s Remorse.
    
During his career, Bucklin earned a number of accolades for his work off the court. Most prominent among them included being a four-time member of the SEC Academic Honor Roll, a member of the 2012 SEC Community Service team for men’s basketball and a 2012 member of the UGA Student-Athlete Advisory Council.
    
Bucklin, who is the nephew of Michigan State head coach Tom Izzo, earned two degrees from Georgia – his bachelor’s in Marketing from UGA’s Terry College of Business in May 2012 and his master’s in Sport Management in May 2014. His older brother Mike preceded him as a member of the Bulldog Basketball program in the 2002-03 and 2003-04 seasons.
