Georgia announced Friday that it has promoted quarterbacks coach and co-offensive coordinator James Coley to its primary offensive coordinator.

It didn't take long for Kirby Smart and company to find a suitable replacement.

The Bulldogs have named current quarterback coach James Coley as the next offensive coordinator, after the departure of Jim Chaney to Tennessee.

Smart released a statement on the hire: "James has been a critical part of our staff since we came to Georgia". He served as the WRs coach for two seasons, before being promoted to co-OC and QBs coach a year ago.

The Bulldogs followed up in 2018 with another SEC Eastern Division championship, 11-win season, and appearance in the Allstate Sugar Bowl. The Hurricanes finished second in the ACC in yards per play at 6.75 in 2013 and 6.68 in 2014, and fourth in scoring with 33.8 points per game in 2013.

Coley's two seasons of coaching Bulldog receivers produced a pair of National Football League draft picks: Isaiah McKenzie (Denver) and Javon Wims (Chicago).

It was a teaser video from Smart that confirmed the hire of Coley as the team's new offensive coordinator. Prior to joining the Miami staff, he held the position of offensive coordinator from 2010-12 at Florida State.
