UGA hires former Alabama offensive analyst to Director of Player Personnel position

Georgia has hired former college coach and offensive analyst Ronnie Letson as Director of Player Personnel.

Letson has been the wide receivers coach at Samford since February, and prior to that he was an offensive analyst at Alabama.

“Ronnie has a vast wealth of knowledge in both on-field coaching and organizational skills that will be a great asset to our program,” Georgia coach Mark Richt said in a news release. “His career has been spent in the southeast and he knows the landscape of college football.”

The position opened up earlier this month after Daryl Jones left his job as Director of On-Campus Recruiting. According to the Director of Player Personnel job posting, Letson will be “responsible for the organization of the recruiting department and its day to day functions. … (Letson) will work to support the vision of the Football Recruiting Coordinator (Bryan McClendon).” The job also includes overseeing the walk-on program.

Letson is graduate of Norcross High School and played wide receiver at Ole Miss, where he went on to serve as a graduate assistant from 2003-04. He began his coaching career as wide receivers coach at Jacksonville State, a position he held from 2000-02, and then spent 2002-03 in the same role at Presbyterian College before returning to Ole Miss.

Letson then served as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Jacksonville State from 2004-12, and while there was in charge of the team’s play-calling and coaches 31 all-conference and six all-American players.
