LEXINGTON, Ky. – As Georgia’s offense continues to struggle, offensive coordinator Jim Chaney will try something new.
Chaney will call plays from the booth Saturday night at Kentucky, someone familiar with the decision confirmed about an hour before the game. The veteran offensive coordinator, who is also the team’s quarterbacks coach, has been on the sideline the first eight games of the season.
Georgia’s offense ranks 100th nationally in total defense, and 104th in scoring offense. The Bulldogs have yet to reach 40 points in a game this season, something it has done at least once every season since 2000. Last year they did it three times.
Earlier this week, on Monday morning, star tailbacks Nick Chubb and Sony Michel went to Chaney, to ask about their use in the Florida game. Chubb only had nine carries and Michel only had three.
