ATHENS — Georgia is adding a graduate assistant who has SEC playing experience.
Wendel Davis, who played linebacker at Arkansas, has joined Georgia as a graduate assistant for defense, according to his Twitter profile.
Davis played at Arkansas from 2006-09. Last year he was at Texas in a support staff role, as a defensive analyst. Prior to that, he was co-defensive coordinator at Texas A&M-Commerce, a Division II school.
New Georgia head coach Kirby Smart has made a number of hires for off-field, quality control personnel. But this one doesn’t fall in that category: Georgia, like all NCAA teams, is allowed to have four graduate assistants, who are the only people besides the 10 full-time coaches allowed to coach during practices.
