Coaching Changes For Richt's Staff

...and no, not the changes you may have been thinking about at the end of last season.

Bryan McClendon has been promoted from graduate assistant to running backs coach. The move was made after Steve Greer retired from his position as Director of Football Operations. John Eason assumes that role and former RBs coach Tony Ball will now coach receivers.

Just a little more Dawg flair for CMR's staff. McClendon is of course the son of Willie McClendon, who is eighth on the Dawgs' career rushing list. The younger McClendon played receiver under Richt for four seasons.

Greer, a former Bulldog All-American, served as a coach under Dooley and Goff. He coached at Georgia for 27 seasons. Beginning in 1996 he assumed the role of Director of Football Operations. 

His son Michael you may remember was a receiver and kick returned under Donnan.
