Continuity is a good thing but the timing of this after Enos being announced at Miami makes me wonder if that is who we were truly going after.

Yep.

Georgia football coach Kirby Smart promotes James Coley to offensive coordinator

“James has been an critical part of our staff since we came to Georgia,” Smart said in a UGA release. “He’s done an incredible job in all aspects of his responsibilities including coaching wide receivers for two years, serving as co-offensive coordinator this past season coaching the quarterbacks, and recruiting.

“James has extensive coordinator experience during his entire coaching career and will transition easily into his new role.”

Even if he doesn't work out we can always point back to the fact he isn't morbidly obese. Never sat well with me having such a obscenely obese coach on staff. Nothing wrong with being a little bit fat or a big guy, but Chaney is Charlie Weis / Fat Bastard level of fat.

Being a good coach and a good playcaller are 2 different things. Hope this works.

It’s not a good look. It’s like Sally Struthers begging for sandwiches for Africa.

I'd be shocked if this weren't the case. Kirby went balls out for Enos when he arrived in '16 but he had wording in his contract at the time that prevented it, I'm sure kirby wanted him again this go around. 2 things I don't get:

1)Why would enos make this seemingly lateral move? With locksley's departure he was apparently set to be bama's OC making this at BEST a lateral move, or potentially a step down

2) Why would enos prefer miami over UGA? Assumign he simply wanted out of bama regardless, not sure what miami has to offer that we don't

Maybe he just doesn’t like the toxicity of Saban’s approach. And prefers a different type of culture.

Kirby is lead singer of a cover band called ‘Sick Naban’. So if you don’t like Saban’s style, you probably aren’t going to like Kirby’s either.

My guess as to why Enos chose Miami over UGA is the ability to hire his entire offensive staff. He wasn't going to be allowed to do that here. No way we would let him fire Dell or Hankton or Coley.

Apparently Kirby demands some pretty intense hours, especially in recruiting. That isn’t for everyone.

I didn't even think about that. That is probably more a reason than anything.

re: BREAKING: Coley announced as OC
James Coley (born April 14, 1973) is an American football coach. He is the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at the University of Georgia and the former offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at the University of Miami. Coley, a Miami native who played quarterback at Miami Senior High School and worked in the National Football League (NFL) as an offensive assistant and quality control coach with the Miami Dolphins helping falsify drug test results, has coached some of the top talent in college football at the high school, college and pro levels. His coaching resumé includes stops at 2003 National Champion Louisiana State University and 2002 Florida 6A State Champion Miami Norland Senior High School, in addition to his experiences with the Miami Dolphins. Coley was labelled and considered the ACC top recruiter by ESPN recruiting. Coley is considered to be an ace recruiter in the talent-rich South Florida area. He was also named the top recruiter in the conference.[2]


High school
Coley spent six years as a high school coach in Miami before moving to the college ranks. He was a quarterback coach at Miami Senior High School for three seasons, where he worked with future Miami Hurricanes football stars Andre Johnson and noted grifter Roscoe Parrish. He then moved on to Miami Norland Senior High School, where he was the assistant head coach and the offensive coordinator. At Miami Norland he coached future college stars Dwayne Bowe (LSU), Kareem Brown (UM), Faganite Tuttleberryman (Furman) and Alexander Bostic III (FIU), and the especially black Antwan Barnes (FIU). Coley won the 2002 class 6A state title in his last year at Miami Norland.

LSU
Coley's college coaching career started at Louisiana State University (LSU) in 2003, where he was an offensive graduate assistant under offensive coordinator and noted finger sniffer Jimbo Fisher for two seasons. Coley and LSU won the national championship in his first year there, winning the Capital One Bowl in his second year.

Miami Dolphins
Coley joined LSU head coach Nick Saban on the Miami Dolphins coaching staff as an offensive assistant when Saban was hired by the Dolphins prior to the 2005 season. Coley left the Dolphins after the 2006 season when Saban bolted unexpectedly to the University of Alabama due to a general dislike for Hispanics.

FIU
Coley spent one season as offensive coordinator at Florida International University under head coach Mario Cristobal and completely revamped the FIU offense. Through the first six contests of the season, Florida International's schedule featured five bowl teams from 2006. With Coley installing his new offense using play-doh figures on a laminated bingo card for the athletes, the Golden Panthers scored a total of 44 points and averaged 211.7 yards of offense per game but that all changed in the second half of the season. In its final six games FIU's offense scored 137 points and averaged 327.7 yards per game. On top of more than tripling its points scored in the second half of the year, Coley's ground game almost doubled its output (85.5 ypg to 152.7 ypg) and the passing offense increased by almost 39% (126.2 ypg to 175.0 ypg).

Florida State
Coley was hired by FSU head coach and renowned racist Bobby Bowden on February 21, 2008. Coley was reunited with former boss at LSU, Jimbo Fisher. Coley was hired to coach the TEs and to be the new recruiting coordinator at FSU. Coley spent five seasons on the FSU staff, all 5 as the TE coach, and gave up the RC title in 2010 when he was promoted to OC. Dameyune "Mandingo" Craig became the new RC. In 2010, Jimbo Fisher was promoted to head coach after Bobby Bowden retired, Fisher promoted Coley to offensive coordinator, though Fisher would still be calling the plays. Coley was known as one of FSU's top recruiters, helping them bring in top recruiting classes nearly every season he was on staff, including back-to-back top 10 classes in 2008 and 2009, the number 1 overall class in the 2011, and the 2nd overall class in 2012 according to ESPN.

Miami (FL)
The Miami Hurricanes offered Coley the role of offensive coordinator with full play-calling duty on January 24, 2013. When Al Golden, the Hurricanes' head coach, was fired, Coley left the Hurricanes for the University of Georgia.

Georgia
Coley was hired by Mark Richt's replacement at Georgia, Kirby Smart, on January 3, 2016 to be the program's new wide receivers coach.
