On Monday, Georgia head coach Mark Richt announced the hire
of new running back coach Thomas Brown.
Brown, who spent the 2014 season as Wisconsin's running back coach, will replace Bryan McClendon who will now be coaching the wide receivers at Georgia.
McClendon is taking over for former wide receiver coach Tony Ball who left the staff last Friday to accept the same job with LSU.
"These moves with two former Georgia teammates will add a great dimension to our offensive coaching staff," said Richt. "It brings back a great Bulldog running back in Thomas who has NFL playing experience and has had success as a college coach at multiple schools. He also inherits a position that has been built to an elite level by Bryan. And it gives Bryan the opportunity to return to coaching the position he played and the one where he cut his teeth serving as a graduate assistant under wide receiver coach John Eason here at UGA. It also provides him with a new experience as passing game coordinator."
Brown and McClendon were teammates on the 2005 Georgia SEC championship team.
