I hope the old saw about having two quarterbacks isn’t analogous to having two special teams coordinators, because that’s what Georgia’s now got.
Richt has long resisted the idea of naming a special teams coordinator, choosing to spread the duties over four of his assistants. But now two assistants coaches will oversee the units, and carry the titles of co-special teams coordinator.
Tight ends John Lilly will coordinate units deemed as offensive special teams: Kickoff return, punt return and extra point/field goal.
Inside linebackers coach Mike Ekeler (hired last week) will coordinator defensive special teams: Kickoff, punt return block, and extra point/field goal block.
The division of labor there actually makes sense to me. Which probably means it’s doomed.
By the way, note that Bryan McClendon is the new Rodney Garner. I suspect that means less than it used to, other than that Bryan’s about to get a major, well-deserved raise with that new title.
