Report: Texas A&M hires current Georgia assistant
After being demoted from offensive coordinator, James Coley did not last long at Georgia. Outlets covering both UGA and Texas A&M are reporting that Coley will be Jimbo Fisher’s new tight ends coach in College Station.
Coley and Fisher previously worked together at Florida State and LSU. Coley was an LSU graduate assistant from 2003-04 when Fisher was offensive coordinator. Later, at FSU, the pair worked together on Bobby Bowden’s staff, continuing Fisher became head coach in 2010. Coley was FSU’s tight ends coach and recruiting coordinator for 2008 and ’09 while Fisher was offensive coordinator. When Fisher succeeded Bowden as head coach, Coley became his offensive coordinator and also coached tight ends for the first three seasons (2010-12).
After Jim Chaney’s departure, James Coley became Georgia’s offensive coordinator in January of 2019. He was recently demoted from the position with the hiring of new offensive coordinator Todd Monken. Coley had remained on staff as assistant head coach. While Bulldogs fans are happy to have a new play-caller, Coley’s recruiting is likely to be missed.
