Jim Chaney is the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach for the Georgia Bulldogs.
In 2017, Chaney helped engineer an explosive Georgia offense headlined by QB Jake Fromm and RBs Nick Chubb and Sony Michel. During the first game of the season, Bulldogs starting QB Jacob Eason left due to a leg injury, and Fromm took his place. He never looked back either.
The Bulldogs offense averaged over 35 points per game and was the SEC’s top rushing offense averaging over 258 rushing yards per game. Georgia went on to win the SEC Championship, Rose Bowl and had a national championship berth. However, the Bulldogs lost to Alabama in overtime of the College Football Playoff final.
Chaney came to Georgia from the Pittsburgh Panthers where he coached the QBs and coordinated the offense for one season.
Prior to coaching Pitt, Chaney coached at Arkansas under Bret Bielema. Before Fayetteville, Chaney coached at Tennessee under Derek Dolley and in the NFL with the St. Louis Rams. He helped Tyler Bray in becoming one of the SEC’s best passers while in Knoxville.
Prior to his NFL stint in 2008, Chaney worked as Purdue’s offensive coordinator for nearly a decade. He was Drew Brees’ top mentor during his time with the Boilermakers.
