Georgia Bulldogs Hire Todd Monken

January 17th, 2020

Bound for Athens.

A former Bucs assistant is heading back to the SEC.

Former Bucs offensive coordinator Todd Monken, a talented and popular gunslinger of a play-caller, is headed back to the college ranks after becoming collateral damage in the wake of the blowup of the Browns.

Monken, who served as Bucs wide receivers coach/offensive coordinator from 2016-2018 under Dirk Koetter, oversaw one of the NFL’s best offenses in 2018. He also largely is responsible for honing the skillset of All-World Bucs receiver Mike Evans.

This morning, per Seth Emerson of The Athletic, the Georgia Bulldogs and Kirby Smart hired Monken to presumably be the offensive coordinator in Athens.

Now Georgia is largely known as Running Back U. They churn out damn fine running backs including a guy who likely will be a top running back pick in the draft come April, D’Andre Smith.

The Bucs, meanwhile, have a dreadful running attack with overrated and likely over-the-hill Peyton Barber and shouldn’t-be-on-the-roster Dare Ogunbowale.

So Joe has a poll question for readers. Joe doesn’t think he is being unreasonable here with what the Bulldogs have on their roster compared to the lousy Bucs running backs.

Among the college coaching stops for Monken was at LSU.

Have your say!

    Bulldogs. Can’t participate in the poll because i have no social media. Anyone think Clyde Edwards-Helaire would be a good fit?

    To early to tell…get back to us after the draft…but if you’re talking about last year then yeah give the nod to the ‘Dogs.

  3. Youngbucs Says:

    Who had a better QB last year LSU or the Bucs

  4. Youngbucs Says:

    Who had a better QB this season LSU or the Bucs

  5. Dare's Mama Says:

    Why you gotta do Pookie like that?

  6. LaMarcus Says:

    Probably never coach in the NFL again. Sucks

  7. Says:

    Youngbucs that one is easy. Better question is who had a better year, Bucs or bulldogs qb

  8. Pewter power Says:

    Another stupid poll. Seriously comparing college rosters to nfl is dumb. Rojo is better than anything coming out of Georgia at this point. Rojo had great college tape also, doesnt mean it will work out the same way in the nfl.

  9. Matthew Fifer Says:

    I’d say the Dogs mostly because they have a really good O-Line, our’s got better over the year but we still have weakness….especially in the run game blocking.

    I want to book my flight from Richmond VA for your 2020 draft party. Can you put that info out yet?

  12. Jameishas2go Says:

    I am pretty sure Joe uses phrase like over the hill and America’s QB, etc to get people to respond. I won’t do it. I won’t.

    Etienne back to Clemson…

  14. Taylor Says:

    No social media can’t vote Joe

  15. Duthsty Rhothdes Says:

    BULLDOGS… and dawgs have way better backs than the bucs including dalvin cook little brother

  16. Show me the TDs Says:

    This must be the 12 year old “Joe”, who relates so well with Jameis.

  17. Adrnagy Says:

    Per pewter plank

    Rumors have begun to spread today that Winston is being signed to a large contract

  18. Duthsty Rhothdes Says:

    if the bucs sign him to a UUUUGE contract then the bucs slide behind ohios pro teams

  19. Buczilla Says:

    I’d rather have an offensive or defensive lineman with our first pick, but if we took D’Andre Smith instead, I wouldn’t cry. Having a running back that defenses have to worry about would be awesome.

  20. BucEmUp Says:

    Derek Henry would get stuffed at the line for rhe bucs because the defense always knows when its a run just lime the fans do before the ball is snapped

  21. Dano Says:

    I really think the Bucs should draft RB Cam Akers of FSU. He has breakaway speed and also runs hard between the tackles. All of this despite FSU’s offensive line being Terrible!!

  22. BigHog Says:

    Monken did very little for Big Mike …for he came to the BUCS a stud, a top tier reciever straight out of college l!!! So he dropped a few passes , which is what receivers do, they catch some and they drop some (it’s the nature of the beast). BIG MIKE has the will to be great, so he corrected his problem like the great ones do and Monken just happen to be standing on the sidelines! Lets see how many stude receivers he sends to the NFL from Georgia!

  23. Isaac haggins Says:

    Cam Akers may not be in the top 20 Rb avail . Talk about overrated

  24. BigMacAttack Says:

    I Like Coach Monk, wish they would have kept him. I think he’ll make the Bulldogs better.

  25. Swampbuc Says:

    I’m a Gator fan. The competition in the SEC is getting better. A lot better. Go Dan Mullen, go!

    You know, Joe, there are some raging defectors from mental competence posting on your website, Well, they shut down the state institutions, what are you going to do.
