"We've worked with Todd in the past at Georgia and he did an excellent job including his interim role with our defensive staff," said Richt. "He's a tireless worker and having served as recruiting coordinator and on-field coach in recent years he has a strong sense of what we are looking for in a student-athlete at Georgia."
Prior to his graduate assistantship at Georgia, Hartley served as an offensive quality control coach at West Virginia from May, 2008 to May, 2009, and as an offensive/special teams undergraduate assistant at UGA from 2006-08. He earned his B.S. in Health and Physical Education from UGA in 2008.
A native of Gray, Ga., Hartley is married to the former Jessica Spires and they have three children: son Tucker and daughters Tenley and Teagan.
