Georgia has reportedly found its new running backs coach.

Matt Zenitz of 247Sports reports that Josh Crawford is making the move from Atlanta to Athens. Crawford was the wide receivers coach at Georgia Tech this past season. Per Zenitz, he was in the mix for the UGA wide receivers coach position, which went to James Coley.

Crawford was a high school in the Peach State from 2010-to-2020. He made the jump to the college ranks in 2021, joining the Western Kentucky staff as outside receivers coach. Crawford added the co-offensive coordinator with WKU in 2022.

Crawford has big shoes to fill. Dell McGee, who left to become Georgia State’s head coach, was regarded as one of the top recruiters in the country. As a running backs coach, he helped put Nick Chubb, Sony Michel, D’Andre Swift, Elijah Holyfield, James Cook and Zamir White in the NFL.
