Garner staying at Georgia

Just got this from the Georgia sports information department:
University of Georgia defensive line coach Rodney Garner, the first assistant coach hired by Mark Richt at UGA, will remain with the Bulldog coaching staff after considering an offer from the University of Tennessee to coach on the offensive side of the ball.

"Certainly I'm flattered and am sincerely appreciative of the interest shown by Tennessee," said Garner. "But in the final analysis the positives at Georgia were the determining factors. My heart is coaching on the defensive side of the ball. I enjoy working with Coach Richt and the rest of the staff and our family loves being a part of the Athens community. "
Garner interviewed for Auburn's head coaching position early in the process and it's not clear if he was a candidate for any of the Tigers' assistant positions. This makes it pretty clear that he's staying with the Bulldogs.

Also, I just wanted to post that mug shot again. That is menacing.
