Georgia wide receivers coach James Coley reportedly has caught the interest of Jimbo Fisher and Texas A&M.
As reported by ESPN’s Mark Schlabach on Tuesday, the Georgia assistant is the “leading candidate” to become the Aggies’ offensive coordinator. The report comes a day after Fisher was introduced as Texas A&M’s coach after leaving Florida State.

Coley has a history with Fisher. Coley was the tight ends coach and recruiting coordinator at Florida State from 2008-09 before becoming the Seminoles’ offensive coordinator and tight ends coach from 2010-12.
Coley also was the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Miami from 2013-15. He was named Georgia’s wide receivers coach in 2016, and he has gained a reputation as one of the Bulldogs’ top recruiters.
It will be worth tracking this situation as Fisher’s staff fills out in College Station.
