Georgia Tech continues to improve staff with the addition of Jim Chaney who will serve as the offensive analyst for the Yellow Jackets.
Jim Chaney joins the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets as an offensive analyst role to try and jump-start the offensive and have them performing at their best for the fall. So who is Jim Chaney and what does this mean for Georgia Tech as they continue their spring practices.
Jim Chaney background
Jim Chaney is a 36-year coaching vet and is said to have one of the brightest offensive minds in college football. Chaney has coached all over during his 36-years. From top-tier college programs or NFL teams, Chaney has done it.
Chaney has worked for the Georgia Bulldogs, Tennessee Vols, St Louis Rams, Pittsburgh, Arkansas, Purdue, Wyoming, Western Michigan, and Cal State, and his most recent job was with the New Orleans Saints as the offensive analyst.
Now after a year of performing at the NFL level again, Chaney decided to come back to the college route and work for Coach Geoff Collins and the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets as the off-field offensive analyst.
Now a lot of you may be asking, “what does an offensive analyst even do?” . Its easy to explain, what they do is they take all the stats of an individual player or the team or a specific unit, such as Running backs, wide receivers, quarterbacks, etc, or the whole offense as a whole, and review and provide insight on what is working or on how to improve to the head coach and offensive coordinators.
Will this move really have an impact on the team next season?
Now I get that some people will see this and think it won’t do much for Georgia Tech because it’s an off-field role and he won’t be drawing up the playbook and doing everything his way. But this is still an extremely good move.
Georgia Tech is getting a guy who knows what it takes to be successful at the college level and was just at one of the most prestigious NFL franchises. Working with schools like the Bulldogs and Vols shows that he can improve offense whether he is the offensive coordinator or the offensive analyst that he will do whatever he can to improve the players and team.
So all in all this move is a 10/10 hire. Especially with the hire of Del Alexander now, Georgia Tech’s offense is going to take a big jump forward I believe. Because you are adding two minds that are well respected all around and having them work together I am excited to see what the future entails for Georgia Tech.
