UGA losing another assistant, this one to NFL

Kirk Olivadotti

Late Wednesday night, word broke that Georgia was losing defensive line coach Chris Wilson to a lateral move to USC.  A short time later, the Bulldogs saw yet another assistant bolt, albeit this time for the professional ranks.

Citing two sources close to the football program, the Macon Telegraph is reporting that Kirk Olivadotti has decided to leave UGA and take a job with the Washington Redskins.  Olivadotti, who coached inside linebackers for the Bulldogs, had spent more than a decade with the NFL club prior to his arrival in Athens three years ago.

The Telegraph wrote that “Georgia head coach Mark Richt said earlier on Wednesday that Olivadotti and Wilson would return as long as they wanted to, and that he believed they wanted to stay.”

Georgia has not confirmed either assistant has left the program.

The twin departures come four days after defensive coordinator Todd Grantham left for the same job at Louisville and two days after UGA poached Florida State coordinator Jeremy Pruitt as Grantham’s replacement.

    Can’t blame him at all, he deserved a shot at DC, and that would not have happened for a long time, given the Pruitt hire.

    Good luck, Kirk.
