Redskins assistant set to join UGA staff

Warren Belin's departure for the NFL opened up a spot on Georgia's defensive coaching staff. The Bulldogs are apparently reaching back to the pros to replace him.

Kirk Olivadotti, a longtime assistant with the Washington Redskins, is leaving to join Georgia, according to a source close to the program.

The Washington Post also reported that Olivadotti was headed to Georgia. There was no confirmation yet from UGA.

Olivadotti, who has been the Redskins' longest-tenured assistant, has been coaching the team's linebackers. Belin was Georgia's inside linebackers coach for one year before leaving for the Carolina Panthers.

This was going to be Georgia defensive coordinator Todd Grantham's hire. So considering Grantham's NFL background - 11 years in the league before coming to UGA last year - it's no surprise he would hire someone from the league.

Here's a link to Olividatti's bio.

We don't deserve to go to the NCAAs. Period.

Another disgraceful loss. Play some damn defense guys.

Just when i started to believe in UGA basketball, I'm reminded of UGA basketball.
