Georgia and Mark Richt have been criticized heavily for not having a special teams coach, and the Bulldogs’ special teams unit was one of the worst in the SEC in 2013.
However, Richt has announced the Bulldogs don’t have just one special teams coordinator; they now have two.

Tight ends coach John Lilly will coordinate the offensive special teams (punt return, kickoff return and extra point/field goal), while inside linebackers coach Mike Ekeler will coordinate the defensive special teams (punt return block, kickoff and extra point/field goal block).
Running backs coach Bryan McClendon was also named the new recruiting coordinator, and he was responsible for landing top running backs Sony Michel and Nick Chubb, top defensive end Lorenzo Carter and receiver Isaiah McKenzie, among others.
