Luckie is the son of former UGA standout who shared the following about his son and Kirby Smart in an interview with Patrick Garbin:
UGASports: What about your family?
Mike Luckie: “I’ve known my wife, Hillary, for 19 years, and we’ve been married for 15. When I took the job with Philip Morris, I met her at the sales training. She was working in New York at the lower Manhattan district. We have three boys. Our son, Lawson, is a tight end for Norcross High School and actually started several varsity games as a freshman last year after he came back from an elbow injury. He should have a promising 2020 season—if there is a season.”
UGASports: What’s your opinion of the current state of UGA football, especially since you played with head coach Kirby Smart?
Mike Luckie: “Yes, the three of us came in at Georgia the year after Kirby. I was happy for him when he was named our head coach. It was deserving. When I played with him, Kirby was a really smart guy. Even when he was playing, you could tell he had coaching in his blood. For example, he rarely busted an assignment but could tell others when they busted their assignment. He was built for it (coaching). Although we don’t get back as much [for games] because we’re rather involved with our kids, I follow the Dogs, and the recruiting and all. Honestly, I think Georgia just needed some more pieces before Kirby got there. In time, the program got those pieces under Kirby, and, since then, it’s been exciting to see what Georgia can do each season.”
