Report: Smart meets with potential tight ends coach for Georgia

Coley is not being retained by new Miami head coach Mark Richt, and he worked with Smart at LSU, so he seems to be a good fit to join his staff.
Chaney was named offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach, but Georgia still has a need for a tight ends coach since John Lilly will be leaving Georgia after the bowl game.
