Georgia head strength and conditioning coach Joe Tereshinski resigned Monday, according to a university spokesman.

Tereshinski's resignation will take effect immediately after Georgia's bowl game.

The 61-year-old has been strength and conditioning coach for the Bulldogs since January 2011. He was promoted to that position after serving as assistant strength coach and video coordinator since 1982.

His father, Joe Tereshinski Sr., was an All-SEC end for the Bulldogs in 1946. Tereshinski was Georgia's starting center for the 1975 team that went to the Cotton Bowl and the 1976 team that played in the Sugar Bowl.

His son, Joe Tereshinski III, made four starts at quarterback in 2006 as a fifth-year senior before being replaced by freshman Matthew Stafford.
