Darryl Jones’ replacement is on board and, yes, he’s served time in Tuscaloosa.
Former college coach and offensive analyst Ronnie Letson has been named Director of Player Personnel at the University of Georgia according to an announcement Monday by head football coach Mark Richt.
“Ronnie has a vast wealth of knowledge in both on-field coaching and organizational skills that will be a great asset to our program,” said Richt. “His career has been spent in the southeast and he knows the landscape of college football.”
Letson most recently served briefly as wide receivers coach at Samford University (since February, 2014) but spent the 2013 season as an offensive analyst at the University of Alabama.
If I didn’t know any better, I’d think this was part of a deliberate strategy to make Kirby Smart feel more comfortable when Richt leaves Athens.
One interesting side note to this:
