ATHENS -- Quarterback Aaron Murray sprained his right ankle playing soccer during the weekend, but he’s expected to be fine for the start of Georgia’s spring football practice.
Murray, who started all 13 games for the Bulldogs last year, will perform rehabilitation under the supervision of the sports medicine staff and is expected to be available for spring practice, according to a Georgia release.
Georgia’s first spring practice is March 10, followed by a 12-day break before the second one. The G-Day game is April 16.
When the Bulldogs open spring practice, they will have two new assistant coaches.
Will Friend will be earning $200,000 as Georgia’s new offensive line coach, and Kirk Olivadotti will be getting $250,000 to coach the inside linebackers. That’s according to Georgia’s open records office.
The two newest Georgia assistants will both be on one-year deals.
Stacy Searels, whom Friend is replacing, received $301,200 at Georgia. Searels received a raise up to $425,000 to take the same position at Texas. Warren Belin, the previous inside linebackers coach was earning $190,000 at Georgia. His new deal at Carolina hasn’t been announced, but it almost certain is a substantial raise.
