New Georgia assistant football coaches Will Friend and Kirk Olivadotti will be paid annual salaries of $200,000 and $250,000, respectively, according to documents obtained by the AJC under the state’s open records law.
The coaches’ contracts were not yet available, according to UGA, but their salaries were contained on “employee personnel report” forms.
Friend is the new offensive line coach, hired from Alabama-Birmingham to replace Stacy Searels, who left for Texas.
Olivadotti is the new inside linebackers coach, hired from the NFL’s Washington Redskins to replace Warren Belin, who left for the Carolina Panthers.
Searels and Belin had salaries of $290,000 and $190,000, respectively, at Georgia last year.
