About Sam Pittman

In case you’re wondering about his future, you’re not alone.  Here’s the first report I’ve come across on his future, via Dawgnation’s Jeff Sentell:

A source close to that situation has told DawgNation that Pittman plans to return as offensive line coach for the 2019 season.

Despite recent events, that source said that Pittman will remain in Athens.

It is not yet known what level of a financial package the Bulldogs might have offered to Pittman to ensure he remained with the team.

Back up the Brink’s truck, in other words.  Whatever money they saved on not matching UT’s offer to Chaney is likely to be swallowed up with Pittman’s new deal.  He’s worth it.

    Just sign a check, hand it to Pittman and say: ” fill it out”.

    While I absolutely want to keep Pittman at almost any price, I will say that the replacement for Chaney needs to be someone that Pittman can work with. I am not a Chaney critic – I think he has done a good job – but the main loss to me is that we know that Chaney and Pittman worked well together. My biggest fear is a Schottenheimer type hire. Gotta trust Kirby to figure this out, and I hope he is thinking the same thing.

    He’s right there w/ Alex Gibbs & Wayne McDuffie as being the best we’ve had in Athens. Kirby can’t lose him & keep the train on the tracks.

      After a ho hum season in 1958, Wally Butts made one change in the coaching staff prior to the 59 season. He brought in Jennings B. Whitworth as offensive line coach….Georgia won nine games and beat Missouri in the Orange bowl. Good Oline coaches are solid gold.

    From other sources, the rumor is 3 year, 1.5mil per year………As John Malcovich’s character says in the movie Rounders, “pay that man his money”

        Give him the 3 mil and keep his mauler pipeline open and I can call the offensive plays for free and do as well as Chaney.

        Let’s see, run it 66%, except to tiny backs up the middle and max protect on pass plays to our 5 star WRs Robertson and Blaylock, and 4 star Hollomon.

        See, 2 thousand yard rushers, 20 TDs and 4 ints. for Fromm and then I get 1.5 mil.

        When do I start?

    Here’s hoping he really likes Athens and the new OC is not going to cross him.

    Pittman is NOT a good offensive line coach. He recruits massive, soft players who get pushed around by good D-lines. Has his whole career. Go back and look at his lines at Arky and Tenn. Neither teams accomplished anything.
