ATHENS, Ga. -- Longtime Washington Redskins assistant Kirk Olivadotti is the University of Georgia's new inside linebackers coach.
Bulldogs coach Mark Richt said Friday he has hired Olivadotti, who was with the Redskins for 11 years.
Olivadotti replaces Warren Belin, who took a job on the Carolina Panthers' new staff. Olivadotti is the son of longtime NFL defensive coach Tom Olivadotti.
Richt said Olivadotti is at the "top level in football knowledge and competency."
