Veteran OC to join the staff of new Bulldogs' head coach Kirby Smart

Pitt offensive coordinator Jim Chaney has left to accept the same position with Georgia, joining new Bulldogs coach Kirby Smart's staff.

Georgia also announced the additions of Sam Pittman from Arkansas as offensive line coach and Alabama's Glen Schumann as a defensive assistant.

Chaney, 53, spent one season at Pitt after spending the previous two at Arkansas. He coached the previous four seasons at Tennessee.

“On behalf of our entire program, I would like to thank Jim for his contributions to Pitt," said Pitt head coach pat Narduzzi. "His work was very important as we established our program in this first year. In addition to being an excellent football coach, he is a tremendous person and we wish him and his family the very best.”

Chaney had a dynamic passing attack with Drew Brees at Purdue, but also led a power-running attack with the Razorbacks in 2013 and 2014. This is his fourth job in the past five seasons.

He also spent three years in the NFL as an offensive assistant with the St. Louis Rams from 2006 to 2008.
