Former Gophers offensive coordinator Jay Johnson has been hired as an offensive analyst at Georgia, Johnson confirmed Friday night.

The news was first reported by

A Lakeville native, Johnson returned to Minnesota last year and had a one-season stint as the Gophers offensive coordinator. After averaging 22.5 points per game in 2015, the Gophers increased that total to 29.3 under Johnson, who had previously worked at Louisiana-Lafayette and a host of other schools.

The Gophers finished 9-4 last season, but Athletics Director Mark Coyle fired Johnson, along with head coach Tracy Claeys and the rest of the coaching staff in January.

At Georgia, Johnson will be working under head coach Kirby Smart and offensive coordinator Jim Chaney.
