Bryan McClendon was named Interim Head Coach of the Bulldogs on Dec. 3, 2015. He will serve in that capacity through Georgia’s appearance in the TaxSlayer Bowl.

A former wide receiver at UGA, McClendon held three titles during the 2015 regular season: wide receivers coach, Assistant Head Coach and Passing Game Coordinator. From 2009-2014, he was the Bulldogs’ running backs coach. McClendon also served as Recruiting Coordinator in 2014-15.

Since joining the full time staff, Georgia teams have won 63 games and two SEC Eastern Division titles. He’s been part of an offensive staff that led Georgia to the 2014 SEC scoring offense title (41.3 ppg) and three consecutive record-setting seasons: Total Yards in a Season (6,547 in 2012, 6,294 in 2013, 5,964 in 2014); Average Yards Per Game (467.64 in ‘12, 484.2 in ‘13, 458.8 in ‘14 ); and Most TD’s in a Season (72 in 2012, 58 in ‘13, 70 in ‘14).

He has coached some of the country’s best tailbacks including Todd Gurley (2015 1st round draft choice of the St. Loukis Rams), 2014 Freshman All-American Nick Chubb, and 2011 SEC Freshman of the Year Isaiah Crowell.

He was a four-year letterman with the Bulldogs (2002-05) and his senior class won 44 games--most by any class in Georgia history. During his tenure, the Bulldogs won three Southeastern Conference Eastern Division titles (2002, ‘03, ‘05), two SEC championships (2002, ‘05), and played in four bowl games (2003 Nokia Sugar, ‘04 Capital One, ‘05 Outback, ‘06 Nokia Sugar), winning three of them.

McClendon’s career blossomed in 2005, when the Bulldogs won the SEC championship. The Atlanta, Ga., native caught 35 passes, six going for touchdowns. He caught the game-winning TD pass in the closing minutes against Georgia Tech, and then blocked a punt in the SEC Championship game, which led to the Bulldogs’ third TD in the 34-14 victory over LSU.

Following his Georgia career, McClendon signed a free agent contract with the NFL’s Chicago Bears.

He graduated in December, 2005, with a degree in Recreation and Leisure Studies. He is the son of former Georgia tailback Willie McClendon, 1978 SEC Player of the Year and running back for the Chicago Bears.
 He is married to the former Amber Arnold of Atlanta, Ga. They have two children, Bryan, 8; and Brooke, 3.
