Robert Muschamp

Defensive Quality Control


Muschamp joins the Los Angeles staff after spending the last two seasons at the University of Georgia, helping the Bulldogs win back-to-back College Football Playoff National Championships as a quality control — defense coach. In 2022, the Bulldogs' defense held opponents to less than 10 points six times, including the 2023 CFP National Championship Game win over TCU, holding the Horned Frogs to just seven points.

Prior to his tenure in Athens, Ga., Muschamp served as a graduate assistant for two seasons (2019-20) at the University of Tennessee, working primarily with the defense. The Volunteers defeated Indiana in the Gator Bowl following the 2019 season, Tennessee's first bowl victory in three seasons.

Muschamp played tight end at Auburn University for four seasons (2015-18), helping the Tigers earn a share of the Southeastern Conference Western Division title in 2017 and appear in a bowl game following each of his four seasons. Muschamp, who joined the program as a walk-on in 2015, was placed on scholarship in advance of his senior season in 2018. He helped the Tigers earn a win in the Music City Bowl to end his collegiate career.

A native of Rome, Ga., Muschamp's prep career at Darlington School was capped by Class AA All-State and first-team All-Area recognition. Muschamp's uncle, Will, is Co-Defensive Coordinator at the University of Georgia and previously served as the head coach at the University of Florida (2011-14) and the University of South Carolina (2016-20).
