UGA assistant coach James Coley won't be a candidate to join Manny Diaz's staff with the University of Miami, multiple sources have told 11Alive Sports.
Multiple reports from Thursday identified Coley (UGA's co offensive coordinator/QBs coach) as a candidate to fill the Hurricanes' offensive coordinator vacancy, as well as the Bulldogs' OC opening.
Before coming to UGA, Coley served as Miami's offensive coordinator from 2013-15. During that prolific stretch, his unit averaged 30.3 points per game.
On Wednesday, Tennessee introduced former Georgia offensive coordinator Jim Chaney as its replacement in the same capacity.
Head coach Kirby Smart has a task that his predecessor, Mark Richt, never had in 15 seasons at Georgia: Replace the O-coordinator and defensive coordinator slots in the same offseason.
Former D-coordinator Mel Tucker left the program in December, after accepting the head coaching job at Colorado.
It has yet to be seen whether Smart will fill those positions from within, with someone of Coley's ilk, or pursue coaches from outside the program.
One report from Thursday linked Kentucky offensive coordinator Eddie Gran to Georgia's job of the same title, but Gran quickly squashed that rumor with the following Tweet.
