The Georgia Bulldogs will have their third offensive coordinator in as many years when the 2020 football season kicks off.

Todd Monken, who rose to prominence as a college coordinator early last decade at Oklahoma State and spent this past season guiding the offense of the Cleveland Browns, was announced Friday afternoon as Georgia's new offensive coordinator. James Coley, who held that responsibility for the Bulldogs this past season, has been reassigned on the staff and given the title of assistant head coach.

"We are excited to add Todd to our staff," Bulldogs coach Kirby Smart said. "He has a history of establishing explosive offenses at each and every stop in his impressive career in both the National Football League and at major college football programs."

Coley was promoted early last year to replace Jim Chaney, who was Georgia's offensive coordinator in Smart's first three seasons (2016-18) before leaving for the same role at Tennessee.
