Fans love it when their school hires an old star to join the coaching staff at Hometown U. Even when its the strength staff. And that’s why some Georgia fans are likely happy this morning.
New Georgia strength and conditioning coach Joe Tereshinski — himself an ex-Dawg — has hired former UGA linebacker Tony Gilbert to serve as a strength assistant. Gilbert was the caption of the Bulldogs’ 2002 SEC Championship team and recorded 114 tackles that season. He then enjoyed a seven-year NFL career.
