How to revert project back to a previous commit in android studio

I am working on a project in android studio and would like to revert to a previous push. I attempted
VCS => Git => Reset Head (Hard)
but my project in Android Studio is unchanged, likely because I’m doing something wrong. I would like to revert the project in Android Studio to a specific earlier commit that I’ve pushed and I see on github. I do not care about any changes that I have made since the earlier push.
Additionally, I would like this to be done through the GUI within Android Studio if possible.
