The Georgia State Panthers have hired Jeff Jagodzinski to be their offensive coordinator, according to Doug Robertson of the AJC.

The announcement was made by new Georgia Southern coach Trent Miles, who had previously "promised a surprising name would join the staff."

Jagodzinksi has been all over the place since 2006. He was the offensive coordinator with the Green Bay Packers, then took the same position at Boston College. With Matt Ryan as his quarterback, Jagodzinski helped the Eagles to back-to-back appearances in the ACC Championship game.

Jagodzinksi may be remembered best for being fired at Boston College after interviewing for the New York Jets head coach vacancy. He was told not to interview but did so anyway, resulting in his firing.

Since then, the 49-year-old has spent time with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Omaha Nighthawks of the United Football League. He was the head coach at Omaha, leading the Nighthawks to a 3-5 record in his only year with the team.
