ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — Georgia coach Mark Richt has given running backs coach Bryan McClendon the additional title of recruiting coordinator.
McClendon was named national recruiter of the year this week by 247sports and Scout.com. McClendon, who played for Georgia from 2002-05, joined the staff in 2009.
Richt on Tuesday also announced he has restructured special teams duties into offensive and defensive segments.
Tight ends coach John Lilly will coordinate the offensive special teams, including kickoff return, punt return and extra point/field goal. Inside linebackers coach Mike Ekeler will handle the defensive special teams, including kickoff, punt return block, and extra point/field goal.
