Georgia Assistant Comes To Decision Between UGA And Texas A&M

Georgia assistant coach James Coley has come to a decision between staying at Georgia or leaving for Texas A&M.

Wide receivers coach James Coley was offered the position of A&M offensive coordinator by Jimbo Fisher this week.

It looks like Georgia gets to keep its coach, however, as Coley is now expected to continue in Athens, according to DawgNation.

We would expect a raise in salary and a bit more security to have come into play; Coley signed a two year contract before the 2016 season worth $450,000 annually and was due for a new deal. No details of his new contract have been released.

Coley had close ties to Fisher, who left Florida State this week to go to Texas A&M.

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.
