Kevin Sherrer, defensive coordinator at South Alabama in 2013, was named a defensive assistant at Georgia on January 24, 2014, and remained on the staff when Kirby Smart became head coach in December, 2015.

In 2015, the Bulldog defense was first nationally in passing defense (156.5 ypg), seventh in total defense (305.9) and eighth in scoring defense (16.9 ypg). Sherrer coached two of Georgia's top linebackers in tackles, sacks, and tackles-for-loss the past three years in Leonard Floyd and Jordan Jenkins.

In 2014, he was part of a staff that led the `Dogs to improvement in several categories from the year before including points per game (29.0 to 20.7), total defense (375.5 to 337.2 yards per game), passing yards allowed (227.4 to 170.4, second best in the SEC), average yards per catch (13.4 to 10.9), and was second in the SEC in passing efficiency defense (105.8).

Sherrer, who served as Director of Player Development at Alabama for three years prior to joining the South Alabama staff, coached defensive backs for the Jaguars. The 2013 South Alabama defense ranked second in the Sun Belt Conference in total defense (384.3 yards per game) and second in scoring defense (25.2 points per game).

At Alabama, Sherrer's responsibilities included assisting Crimson Tide student-athletes with academics, community outreach and their personal lives. During his tenure, UA posted a 35-5 (87.5%) mark while winning the BCS national title in 2011 and 2012 and the 2012 Southeastern Conference championship.

Prior to joining the staff at Alabama, Sherrer was an assistant at Hoover (Ala.) High (2005-09) including serving as defensive coordinator the final three. The Buccaneers claimed the state 6A championship in 2005 and 2009, and advanced to the title game in two other years. While Sherrer was on the staff, the Buccaneers posted a 61-12 (83.6%) record.

Sherrer was also the DB coach at Spain Park (Ala.) High School (2001-04), where he helped the Jaguars win 16 games his last two seasons. He began his career as an assistant at Tuscaloosa County (Ala.) High (1996-97). Sherrer helped lead the Wildcats to the state 6A championship in his second year on the staff and they would go 21-6 (77.8%) during his tenure with the program.

He was also a graduate assistant at Alabama from 1998-2000, assisting on defense while also helping to coordinate scout teams, video breakdown and on-campus recruiting. The Tide won the 1999 SEC title and played in the Orange Bowl that season, also participating in the Music City Bowl during that three-year span.

Sherrer was a tight end for the Crimson Tide from 1993-95, during which time Alabama recorded a 29-7-1 overall mark while winning the SEC West Division title twice. In 1994, the Tide put together a 12-1 record with a 24-17 victory over Ohio State in the Citrus Bowl to end the year.

He is a 1996 graduate of Alabama with a degree in physical education, and he earned his master's degree in higher education administration from the school in 2000. Sherrer and his wife Carrie have twin sons, Kaleb and Kyle.
