Georgia offensive coordinator Jim Chaney is reportedly leaving the Bulldogs' coaching staff to take the same position at Tennessee under head coach Jeremy Pruitt. Per CBS Sports:
Tennessee has been without an offensive coordinator since Tyson Helton took the Western Kentucky job on Nov. 27, but that long wait resulted in coach Jeremy Pruitt poaching a familiar face from an intra-division rival. According to 247Sports, Georgia offensive coordinator Jim Chaney will take over in the same capacity with the Volunteers after spending three seasons with the Bulldogs.
Chaney previously served as the Vols' offensive coordinator during Lane Kiffin's lone season in 2009, and he stayed on for the next three seasons under Derek Dooley. He also served as the interim coach of the Vols for the final game of the 2012 season, topping Kentucky 37-17.
