Kirk Olivadotti Hired As Georgia Bulldogs LB Coach, According To Report

Kirk Olivadotti, Washington Redskins assistant coach, has been hired by the Georgia Bulldogs to replace Warren Belin as the team’s linebackers coach, according to the Washington Post’s Rick Maese. Belin was hired away by the Carolina Panthers two weeks ago.

Olivadotti was the longest-tenured member of Washington’s coaching staff, working with the team since the 2000 season. He’s also coached at Indiana State and the Maine Maritime Academy, which will come in handy in those seaside battles in Jacksonville. He coached Washington’s linebackers before taking on defensive assistant as his job title.

He’s also coached special teams, defensive line, and defensive backs, in addition to working on quality control.

Dawgs defensive coordinator Todd Grantham surely knows what he’s getting in Olivadotti, if this report is accurate, having coached across the field from him in the NFC East. I haven’t been able to find any previous connection to the Southeast or Mark Richt, as he was born in Delaware and went to school at Purdue.
