As the Georgia Bulldogs continue to prepare for Saturday’s game against North Carolina, the latest news is regarding the Georgia coaching staff. Former Bulldog great and College Football Hall of Fame kicker Kevin Butler has joined the staff as a student assistant. Back as an undergraduate student, he is able to work with kickers Rodrigo Blankenship and William Ham as they compete to fill the void left by former kicker Marshall Morgan.
Additionally, the Bulldogs have announced which coaches will be working from the coaching box. On the defensive side of the ball, Inside Linebackers Coach Glenn Schumann will be in the box. He’ll be joined by either Running Backs Coach Dell McGee or Wide Receivers Coach James Coley from the offense.
Clemson’s Dabo Swinney also made some noise on Twitter yesterday. Swinney suggested that Clemson and Georgia should renew their rivalry every season. Sounds like a great idea on paper, but this would seriously hamper Georgia’s scheduling, as the Dawgs are already locked into annually beating a different ACC school the final week of the regular season.
Moving on to news about #DawgsInTheNFL. According to NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport, the Kansas City Chiefs have let it be known that quarterback Aaron Murray is available via trade. Really hope he lands in a good situation and is able to hang around a little bit longer and see some game time.
Finally, what would Dawg Bites be without a black jersey update? According to the Georgia athletics’ website, Dawg fans should wear red to all games except for November 19th against Louisiana-Lafayette, when fans should show up in black. This would definitely be a good game to ease the black jerseys back into rotation, but it would still be more exciting to break them out against Tennessee.
Until tomorrow… Go Dawgs!
