Former Georgia DB coach joins the Buffalo Bills’ coaching staff

Former Georgia football defensive backs coach Jahmile Addae has reportedly accepted a similar role with the Buffalo Bills. Addae will coach cornerbacks in Buffalo as the latest college coach to head to the NFL.

College football’s challenging calendar, the transfer portal, and name, image and likeness licensing makes the NFL a more attractive destination for college coaches. Last offseason, Georgia offensive coordinator Todd Monken became the Baltimore Ravens’ offensive coordinator in another example of coaches preferring the NFL to college.

Addae coached at the University of Miami from 2022-2023 under head coach Mario Cristobal after his stint with Georgia. Addae won a national championship at Georgia in 2021 after previously serving as the defensive backs coach at West Virginia.

Jonathan Jones reported the former Georgia defensive backs coach was headed to the NFL via social media:

Georgia lost another defensive backs coach this offseason when Fran Brown left to become the head coach at Syracuse.
