ATHENS, Ga. --- University of Georgia head football coach Mark Richt has added the title of Recruiting Coordinator to running backs coach Bryan McClendon as part of a staff restructuring that also focuses on special teams duties.

McClendon, named this week as national recruiter of the year by 247sports and Scout.com, will assume the additional title and coordinate assorted recruiting duties along with Richt. Daryl Jones will continue in his current role as Director of On-Campus Recruiting.

Special teams restructuring includes dividing duties into Offensive Special Teams and Defensive Special Teams. The offensive special teams will be coordinated by tight ends coach John Lilly and include kickoff return, punt return and extra point/field goal. Defensive special teams will be headed by new inside linebackers coach Mike Ekeler and include kickoff, punt return block, and extra point/field goal.

"This restructuring I believe will give us the best chance to win from a recruiting and special teams standpoint," Richt said. "Our recruiting effort will be strengthened and our special teams will be improved as well."

McClendon, who played for the Bulldogs from 2002-05, joined the full time staff in 2009 as running backs coach.
