What James Coley’s time at Miami can teach us about Georgia’s new offensive coordinator

He came to Georgia in 2016 as wide receiver's coach and previous year was promoted to co-offensive coordinator and quarterback's coach.

Coley spent two seasons as Georgia's wide receivers coach before being named the co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach for the 2018 season. He served as the WRs coach for two seasons, before being promoted to co-OC and QBs coach previous year. "James has extensive coordinator experience during his entire coaching career and will transition easily into his new role".

The Bulldogs followed up in 2018 with another SEC Eastern Division championship, 11-win season, and appearance in the Allstate Sugar Bowl.

After speculation all week as to what the Georgia Bulldogs would do with their open offensive coordinator position, we finally have an answer. The Hurricanes finished second in the ACC in yards per play at 6.75 in 2013 and 6.68 in 2014, and fourth in scoring with 33.8 points per game in 2013.

At Florida State, Coley coached three first round draft picks in quarterbacks Christian Ponder, EJ Manuel, and Jameis Winston.
