Stacy Searels To Texas As Offensive Line Coach, According To Report

Georgia Bulldogs offensive line coach and running game coordinator Stacy Searels is expected to become the Texas Longhorns offensive line coach, according to Orangebloods.com. OB’s Geoff Ketchum reports Searels is “on his way to Austin” after having been “been floated in connection with Texas for almost a year.”

The Athens Banner-Herald's Marc Weiszer confirms Searels is "getting ready to board [a] flight to Austin," though the coach has no comment.

Searels came aboard Mark Richt’s staff in 2007 after working his way up as an offensive line coach from Appalachian State to the Cincinnati Bearcats to the LSU Tigers. He also took over as the Dawgs running game coordinator in 2009. He was an All-American blocker for the Auburn Tigers in the ’80s and worked on the Plains as a graduate assistant.

The 45-year-old came highly acclaimed to Athens, having worked on a national title team at LSU. He’s come under fire recently for turning out “underperforming” units. The running game ranked 73rd in the nation in 2010 and 47th in 2009, though how much of that can be attributed to Searels is up for debate.
