Newly hired Georgia linebackers coach Warren Belin will get a one-year contract at a salary of $190,000, UGA said this morning.
Belin, a 20-year coaching veteran who coached linebackers at Vanderbilt the past eight years, was hired by Georgia on Friday.
He essentially replaces John Jancek, fired on Dec. 2, on the staff. Jancek’s base salary last year was $163,000.
Belin was the final hire to replace the three defensive coaches fired in December. Todd Grantham got a three-year, $750,000-a-year contract when hired away from the Dallas Cowboys as defensive coordinator and Scott Lakatos a one-year, $180,000 contract when hired from Connecticut as defensive-backs coach.
Belin will coach either the inside or outside linebackers in the Bulldogs’ new 3-4 defense, but UGA hasn’t yet specified which group Belin will oversee. Grantham will coach the other linebackers group.
