Georgia hires Todd Hartley from Miami as TE coach

ATHENS, Ga. -- Georgia coach Kirby Smart has hired Todd Hartley from Miami to coach the Bulldogs' tight ends.

Hartley returns to Georgia after spending the last three seasons as Miami's special-teams coordinator and tight-ends coach.

A native of Gray, Georgia, Hartley was Georgia's director of player personnel in 2015 following four seasons on the Marshall staff. He first worked at Georgia as a student assistant from 2005 to 2008.

Smart said Hartley is proven "as an excellent position coach and as a top-notch recruiter."

On Friday, Smart promoted James Coley to offensive coordinator after Jim Chaney moved to Tennessee. Chaney coached tight ends in addition to directing Georgia's offense last season.
