Current UGA running backs coach Thomas Brown will join Mark Richt’s staff at Miami, according to a report by DawgNation.

The move comes as a surprise to Bulldog nation, as Brown has been out recruiting and telling prospects that he was staying in Athens. He has been a great recruiter for UGA, and was instrumental in landing a commitment from 2016 running back Elijah Holyfield.

According to DawgNation, Richt’s offer to Thomas Brown also includes an additional title, possibly co-offensive coordinator.

Earlier today, new UGA head football coach Kirby Smart announced that he was retaining defensive line coach Tracy Rocker and outside linebackers coach Kevin Sherrer. Both of those moves were praised by UGA fans.

Smart has also named Jim Chaney as offensive coordinator and Sam Pittman as offensive line coach.

The status of two other UGA assistant coaches is still uncertain. Interim head coach Bryan McClendon, the wide receivers coach, may end up with Will Muschamp at South Carolina. A destination for tights ends coach John Lilly is unknown.

      Telling recruits he’s going to stay and then ‘leaving? How can we teach our kids about honor if our coaches /mentors aren’t teaching it?
