When Brian Schottenheimer was announced as the replacement for Mike Bobo as Georgia offensive coordinator, many Dawg fans were immediately non-plussed. At just 26.5 points per game, UGA's offense ranked 84th nationally, and was the lowest scoring in the state of Georgia among FBS programs. New head coach Kirby Smart has already named Pitt's Jim Chaney as the team's next offensive coordinator, and today, Schottenheimer told the team that he will not be coaching in the TaxSlayer Bowl against Penn State, according to a report by DawgPost.com.

Most Georgia fans probably won't be too upset about this decision. Georgia had previously announced that Schottenheimer and defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt would remain in place for the bowl game, with assistant Bryan McClendon taking the helm for the Dawgs.
