Pittman, 58, had been at Georgia since the start of the 2016 season. He received a salary increase and the title of associate head coach under Kirby Smart last season. Pittman has been credited with the strength of Georgia’s recruiting of offensive linemen.
Pittman was the assistant head coach, offensive line coach and recruiting coordinator at Arkansas from 2013-15 before joining Georgia. Pittman has also coached at Tennessee and North Carolina.
Smart would not confirm reports of Pittman’s possible departure on Sunday during a conference call with reporters regarding Georgia’s invitation to the Sugar Bowl.
“That's always the nature of the beast,” Smart said. “You always hear rumors flying around. You don't ever know what’s true and what’s not. Right now we’re focusing on the Sugar Bowl and getting ready for it.”
Arkansas fired Chad Morris earlier this season after less than two years at the school.
