ATHENS, GA. (AP) - Longtime Washington Redskins assistant Kirk Olivadotti is Georgia’s new inside linebackers coach.

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.

Kirk Olivadotti coached the Redskins‘ linebackers from 2007-09. In 2009, two of Olivadotti’s linebackers, London Fletcher and Brian Orakpo, earned their first Pro Bowl bids.

Richt says Olivadotti is at the “top level in football knowledge and competency.”
