ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — Georgia sophomore cornerback Shaq Wiggins, who started eight games in 2013, is transferring.

Georgia coach Mark Richt said Friday that Wiggins made the decision after the two talked "the last few days."

Wiggins played in 12 games and led the team with two interceptions as a freshman last season. He had 19 tackles.

Georgia has a new staff of defensive coaches, including coordinator Jeremy Pruitt, who coaches the secondary. Also new to the defensive staff are assistants Tracy Rocker, Kevin Sherrer and Mike Ekeler.
