12:41 PM ET 03.08 | Georgia head coach Mark Richt has tabbed Will Friend as running game coordinator. It's an added responsibility for Friend, who is also the Bulldogs' offensive line coach. He takes over a rushing attack that ranked fourth in the SEC last season, averaging 182.6 yards per game. The Bulldogs averaged 4.9 yards per carry, which ranked third in the conference. Georgia's 32 rushing touchdowns were only bested in the SEC by Texas A&M (46) an Alabama (37). The Bulldog offensive line wasn't so great last year, as it gave up 27 sacks, good for eighth in the conference.

When I read the title, I thought it was implying that the coach hired his buddy.

The o line was young this past year and they did better than the ones Searels put together with veterans. They are all back this year so the future looks bright.
