Former Miami (Fla.) player joins Georgia in support staff role
ATHENS, Ga. — Former Miami (Fla.) player Dallas Crawford has joined Georgia’s coaching staff in a support role.
Crawford’s hire was made official earlier this month, according to a document provided after an open records request. His exact title and role was not made clear.
Crawford was a running back who switched to safety late in his Hurricanes career. So it stands to reason that he was brought aboard by James Coley, Georgia’s receivers coach who was Miami’s offensive coordinator and receivers coach until 2015.
Crawford started 20 games with the Hurricanes 2012-15. He rushed for 558 yards and 12 touchdowns in 2013 and then switched to safety, where he had 71 tackles over two years.
Georgia also hired Jacob Stroot as director of technology, likely to replace Brent Greene, who had been the team’s video coordinator before leaving for a job in the NFL.
