John Jancek, defensive coordinator at Central Michigan University in 2004, was named linebackers coach at the University of Georgia in January, 2005.

Prior to joining the Central Michigan staff as defensive line coach in 2003, he served as defensive coordinator and linebackers coach at Grand Valley State University, the 2002 NCAA Division II national champion.

A native of Muskegon, Jancek guided the Grand Valley Lakers into one of the top defensive units in Division II football during his four-year tenure from 1999-2002. GVSU opponents scored only 16.5 points per game in 2002 while posting a 14-0 record. Opponents managed just 279.9 yards per game in total offense and turned the ball over 36 times.

Jancek returned to his alma mater in 1999 after previously working as the defensive coordinator for three years at Hillsdale (1996-98). He also was the defensive tackles coach at Central Florida during the winter/spring of 1996 where he served on the same staff with current defensive coordinator Willie Martinez and former UGA defensive coordinator Brian VanGorder. He also spent three years as defensive coordinator at Wayne State (1992-94) where VanGorder was head coach. He spent the 1991 season as a graduate assistant at Grand Valley.

A 1991 graduate of Grand Valley and '94 master's degree recipient of Wayne State, Jancek was a three-year letterwinner with the Lakers as a defensive lineman. GVSU compiled a record of 28-7 during his three years and advanced to the NCAA Division II playoffs twice. He earned All-Midwest Intercollegiate Football Conference honors as a senior.

Jancek and his wife, Kelly, have four sons, Zachary (9), Brock (7), Jack (5), and Brady (3).
