The Georgia Bulldogs football program saw offensive coordinator Jim Chaney leave Athens to join Jeremy Pruitt's staff in Tennessee. Despite the loss of Chaney, the Bulldogs aren't expected to have anymore major departures.
According to DawgNation, Sam Pittman is expected to return to his position next season as the team's offensive line coach. The financial details of the deal are still unknown as of this writing.

Pittman joined Chaney back in 2016, once Kirby Smart was named the head coach of Georgia. With Chaney leaving, many expected Pittman to join him on the Volunteers football program.
It's a huge gain for Georgia to retain Pittman, as he's played a pivotal role in their recruitment process. In the past two years, Pittman has brought in No. 1 center Clay Webb this season as well as two of the top three offensive guards last year.

As everyone knows in football, a team's offense cannot succeed if the offensive line is the equivalent of a turnstile. Pittman is a coach that linemen want to play for, and his recruiting resume speaks for itself.
Fear not Bulldog fans, it appears Pittman isn't going anywhere.
