The last Georgia quarterback to lead the Bulldogs to the SEC Championship is going back to his roots in the conference.
D.J. Shockley, who enjoyed an outstanding senior season with the Bulldogs in 2005, which culminated with an SEC title in Atlanta over LSU, will join the SEC Network as an analyst for the 2017 football season.
The network announced the news Monday afternoon in a release and with a Tweet.

Shockley will be an analyst on the network’s main program, SEC Now. He will make his debut this Saturday, the first of the season.
In 2005, Shockley was the MVP of the SEC title game, and he also was chosen as the CFA Bobby Bowden Football Player of the Year.
SEC Network also announced that this season former Georgia offensive lineman Matt Stinchcomb would host its popular series SEC Film Room in 2017.
“SEC Film Room allows us all to peek behind the curtain to see why and how the games unfold the way they do on gameday,” Stinchcomb said in the network’s statement. “It’s exciting to be a part of a show with incredible access to the coaches who build the gameplans and the players who carry them out.”
