Callaway joins Richt's staff at Georgia
ATHENS, Ga. (AP) -- Neil Callaway, the offensive coordinator at Alabama for the last three seasons, was hired Sunday to fill the same post at Georgia under new coach Mark Richt.
Callaway also will coach Georgia's offensive line.
"Mark will call the plays," Callaway said. "I'm going to be the offensive coordinator and make sure everything is tied together and the players are doing the right things. Mark is going to call the plays and he did an exceptional job of it at Florida State."
Richt, who had been the offensive coordinator at FSU, was hired to succeed the fired Jim Donnan at Georgia.
Callaway was not retained at Alabama after Dennis Franchione moved in from Texas Christian to replace the fired Mike DuBose.
Callaway, 45, played at Alabama from 1975-77. He has served as an assistant at East Carolina, Wyoming, Auburn and Houston before moving to Alabama in 1997 as offensive line coach.
