ATHENS — Georgia is bringing back Scott Fountain, this time as a full-time assistant coach.

Fountain, who left to become the Mississippi State special teams coordinator a month ago, has been re-hired at Georgia, someone close to the situation confirmed on Wednesday morning.

Fountain was a special teams analyst for Georgia last year, after several years at Auburn as special teams coach. Fountain was credited by many with helping to turn around UGA’s special teams in 2017.

It is not confirmed yet that Fountain will be Georgia’s special teams coordinator. But UGA is without a special teams coordinator after Shane Beamer left to become assistant head coach at Oklahoma a few weeks ago.

Beamer also coached tight ends for Georgia, and that position has yet to be filled.

Georgia has now one assistant coach opening left on its staff.
