The restless kind

Don’t know what’s going on with the former Georgia defensive coaches – first, Fabris backs out of his Louisville job and now this:

Former Georgia defensive coordinator Willie Martinez apparently is in high demand. this morning reports that Martinez  has accepted an assistant coaching job at Oklahoma several days after reportedly accepting a similar job at Stanford.

Here’s the latest  report from national football writer Tom Dienhart:

Willie Martinez has accepted an assistant coaching job at Oklahoma, has learned.

Martinez recently took a position as secondary coach at Stanford, but he has had a change of heart. Martinez coached defensive backs for nine seasons at Georgia and was defensive coordinator for five years in Athens before being fired after last season.

    Wow; when does the inevitable talk of CMR’s Jedi mindtricks come up when it comes to getting guys to hang around Athens for so long if they can’t stay with their new gigs for more than a week or so at a time?

    Good choice for Willie….better program, better talent, better viability and significantly lower cost of living. However, that lower cost of living comes at a cost of trading Palo Alto for Norman — yikes.

    Wow … think anyone in Palo Alto is setting fire to t-shirts?

    Frankly, my dear Scarlett I don’t give a damn where those coaches go. Just go. They are gone. What counts for UGA is a LB coach and recruits. I would hope the Dawgs woud bring in more O lineman and work them both ways for a year. Good to see Coach Richt in the heart of GaHS football…1-5A…the region that reminds everyone it is the “SEC” region. If you are a high school D lineman or LB looking to play at the next two levels you would be wise to play under Coach G…without a doubt “state of the art”.
