Will Friend Hired As Georgia Offensive Line Coach, Replacing Stacy Searels

Will Friend has been hired as the Georgia Bulldogs offensive line coach. Friend, who may never be referenced with pronouns because of that wonderful name, held the same position at UAB for four seasons. The Dragons excelled at pass protection during Friend’s tenure, twice ranking in the top 20 nationwide in sacks allowed.

Friend is a former All-SEC offensive lineman, and a position coach with experience coaching at a number of Southeastern schools. That’s got to be encouraging for recruiting, right? Before Friend’s time in Birmingham, Friend was a graduate assistant under Mark Richt for two years. Richt on Friend:

Will has played and coached under some outstanding, nationally-recognized offensive coaches. He comes with a formidable resume of offensive football knowledge and experience. I got to see first hand his work ethic when he was a graduate assistant on our staff and since that time he’s developed into a seasoned, top notch offensive line coach.

Everyone welcome our old friend Friend back aboard.
