First Tennessee and Mel Tucker, now another SEC school is reportedly looking at a UGA assistant to fill a coaching vacancy.

The one downfall of having a great football team is that you often lose great coaches to other schools.

According to a report from ESPN’s Mark Schlabach, Georgia wide receivers coach James Coley is considered a “leading candidate” to become Jimbo Fisher’s new offensive coordinator at Texas A&M.

Fisher, who spent the past ten seasons at Florida State, was announced as the Texas A&M head coach on Monday morning.

Coley and Fisher have worked together before.

In 2008-09, Coley served as the tight ends coach and recruiting coordinator at FSU while Fisher was on staff as the offensive coordinator. In 2010, when Fisher became the head coach of the Seminoles, he promoted Coley to offensive coordinator, where he worked under Fisher until 2012.

Coley came to Georgia in 2016 and has earned a reputation as one of college football’s top recruiters.
