Georgia Football: John Lilly Should be Bulldogs’ Offensive Coordinator
I wrote at length about this topic here, but what really stands out is the concept of continuity.
Last year Mark Richt famously said that “continuity is a good thing for Georgia” when pestered about Todd Grantham’s job security. Obviously, Grantham ended up leaving of his own volition, but the context and sentiment are worth examination.
Grantham was under fire for a poor performance by the defensive unit. One would be nothing shy idiotic to label Georgia’s offense as anything other than the opposite of “poor.” Hell, the unit set the school record for points scored in a season.
Continuity seems like a good thing for a unit of that caliber, and as John Lilly showed in a brief but impressive debut as play-caller, he can bring that continuity.
Georgia scored 37 points against a Louisville defense that was allowing just 20.5 points per game. Georgia racked up 490 yards against a defense that was allowing just 293 per contest.
Lilly was incredibly competent in providing interim continuity. Adding “O.C.” to his title and hiring a full-time special teams guru doesn’t sound like such a bad proposition.
That’s all I got/
