Georgia sports communication director Claude Felton could not confirm nor deny Lilly's hiring, he said Monday evening. Head coach Mark Richt is out of town recruiting and could not be reached for comment.
Lilly has been at Florida State for 13 seasons and has been the recruiting coordinator there for the last 10 seasons. He worked with Richt on the Seminoles' staff from 1995-2000, when Richt left to become the Bulldogs' head coach. Four of the Seminoles' last six recruiting classes have been ranked in the top four nationally.
Lilly would become just the third former FSU assistant to work for Richt in Athens, joining wide receivers coach John Eason and strength and conditioning coach Dave Van Halanger.
