Kirk Olivadotti joins Georgia's staff

Georgia coach Mark Richt has filled his linebackers job with the hiring of Kirk Olivadotti, who's coached in the Washington Redskins' organization for the past 11 seasons.

The tie is Olivadotti's father, Tom Olivadotti, who coached with Georgia defensive coordinator Todd Grantham on the Houston Texans' staff. The younger Olivadotti was a defensive assistant with the Redskins last season after coaching their linebackers from 2007-09.

The Bulldogs' linebackers job came open when Warren Belin left to take a job on the Carolina Panthers' staff.
