Georgia's support staff continues to grow.
Head coach Kirby Smart has made at least two new recent hires, with Jay Valai joining as a defensive quality control coach and with Hannah Brinks being tabbed as a football graphic design coordinator.
Valai was a former college football safety at Wisconsin from 2007-10. In four years, Valai totaled 154 tackles and 2 interceptions in 48 games played. Since his college career ended, Valai has been a trainer in Texas assisting high school and professional athletes. He helped found the Dallas-area based company Grindhouse Sports Training.
Brinks, a graduate of Alabama, was previously working as a graphic design coordinator at LSU. Brinks was an accomplished swimmer at Alabama, competing at the SEC Championships, NCAA Championships, U.S. Open, U.S. Nationals, World Championship Trials and Olympic Trials.
With Valai and Brinks joining the program, Georgia is now employing 28 support staffers.
