Post Football assistants to stay

Thursday January 18, 2007

Two Georgia assistants are staying put after their names surfaced recently around a couple of job openings:

  • Defensive coordinator / defensive backs coach Willie Martinez is not interested in the Rice head coaching job. Martinez had been mentioned as a "serious candidate" for the job by the Houston Chronicle. Martinez also withdrew from consideration for the FIU head coaching position a few weeks ago.
  • Tight ends coach David Johnson was mentioned as a candidate for the offensive line opening at West Virginia, but that position has been taken by Clemson assistant Ron West. It was reported that Johnson was very interested in the Georgia offensive line job before Stacy Searels was hired, so it’s natural that he felt passed over and was interested in another high-profile offensive line position.
