    Is there a cuntier group of sportswriters than National CFB guys like Wolken and Pete Thamel? Those guys can fuck off.

    I wasn't actively rooting for Chaney to leave, but I don't think it would be tremendously difficult to upgrade from his performance. As long as Pittman stays, I give this a resounding "eh."

    I wonder how the Fields stuff played into this, if at all.

    Hot Board: Early names UGA's OC opening

    In the blink of an eye, Georgia is looking for a new offensive coordinator. Jim Chaney is leaving the program for the same position at Tennessee, leaving the Bulldogs in search of a play caller as they begin preparations for Kirby Smart's fourth season in Athens.

    It's way too early to know exactly what the Bulldogs are thinking. As of right now, they're still looking for a defensive coordinator, too. But below, Dawgs247 lists some names we feel are logical candidates to step into the role vacated by the veteran assistant.

    James Coley (Georgia): Coley is going into his fourth season at UGA where he served as the wide receivers coach for the first three years. He got a significant raise and a promotion to offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach after the 2017 season when Texas A&M's Jimbo Fisher came calling. Coley was the offensive coordinator at three years at Miami under Al Golden. He called the offensive plays in that stop but didn't in his three years as offensive coordinator at FSU under Fisher.

    Major Applewhite ( N/A): The former Texas quarterback is also a candidate for the offensive coordinator job at Miami. Smart and Applewhite worked together for one year at Alabama with the former serving as the defensive backs coach in that season and the latter being the offensive coordinator. Applewhite's most recent stop was a two-year stint as Houston's head coach after serving as the offensive coordinator the previous two seasons.

    Jay Johnson (Colorado): Here's another coach who recently took an offensive coordinator position but the Bulldogs could still target him. When Mel Tucker left his post as Georgia's defensive coordinator to become the head coach at Colorado, Johnson went with him. He had served as an offensive analyst for the Bulldogs the past two seasons. UGA's offense saw a great deal of improvement upon Johnson's arrival in Athens and he's already quite familiar with the Bulldogs' personnel

    56COMMENTS
    Larry Fedora (N/A): This one is a little outside of the box, but there's no denying that the former North Carolina head coach knows offensive football. He spent seven years with the Tarheels and developed Mitch Trubisky into the No. 2 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft and the Tarheels averaged over 40 points per game twice during his time there. He was also excellent as the head coach at Southern Miss and spent three years Oklahoma State and three years at Florida prior to that.

    Matt Canada (Maryland): It wouldn't be the first time Canada has followed right behind Chaney. He was hired as the offensive coordinator at Pittsburgh when Chaney was hired at UGA. He spent one year there before taking the same position at LSU. That also only lasted a year and he spent the 2018 season at Maryland where he was hired as the offensive coordinator but ended up serving as the interim head coach while D.J. Durkin was suspended and then fired. He was retained by Mike Locksley when he was hired as the head coach but Georgia's roster should be quite appealing.

    I'd take Matt Canada in a heartbeat over the rest. Kirby can recruit well enough himself, doesn't need Coley

    I dont want Canada to go to Saban rehab but watching Saban have an aneurysm when Canada tells the rt to shift to the lt and vice versa would be fun.

    A couple of weeks ago? You obviously didn't read any of his posts starting within 30 seconds of Kirby's hiring.

    “Sources told ESPN that Chaney, who had two years left on his three-year contract at Georgia, had grown frustrated with co-offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach James Coley's involvement in game planning and play calling”

    If you think Chaney was frustrated, wait until UGA fans get a load of Coley's game management and play calling.

    We’ve reached the part of the college football calendar where the only fanbases happy with their offensive coordinator are Clemson and every school that got a new one because “he has to be better than the last guy we had.”

    I hated Chaney so much at Arkansas. I remember Jake Scott making fun of his horrid playcalling when we played Georgia, and then he pretended it was a great hire because he's a big fat idiot.

    It was often easy for Chaney to look great when he had a significant talent advantage against nearly every opponent while at Georgia. He won't have that reality while at Tennessee.

    Yeah. I think over half of our starting offense this year was a 5 star. I think a lot of people could be as good (and hopefully avoid being as bad)as he was.

    It's basically the modern version of 3 yards and a cloud of dust. It can be effective if you have Benny Snell and a good o-line but not much margin for error. I think that was more Stoops than him.

    We were 3-9 and 6-6 with Chaney and had 7+ wins the next two years under Enos playcalling
