Brandon Streeter has a new job.

Clemson’s former offensive coordinator, who was fired in January after one season in the role, is joining reigning national champion Georgia in an off-field role as an offensive analyst, per multiple reports.

UGASports.com was the first to report Georgia’s hiring of Streeter, who’d spent 15 seasons as a Clemson quarterback, graduate assistant and assistant coach before his firing (Clemson replaced him with former TCU offensive coordinator Garrett Riley). On3 Sports and The Athletic also confirmed Streeter’s hiring at Georgia.

Clemson coach Dabo Swinney initially promoted Streeter to the offensive coordinator position in December 2021 to replace now-Virginia coach Tony Elliott. At the time, Swinney said he’d interviewed no external candidates for the job and made the decision to hire Streeter in “30 seconds.”

Just over a year later, Streeter became the first assistant coach to be fired by Swinney since former defensive coordinator Kevin Steele after the 2011 Orange Bowl. Swinney reiterated during Riley’s February introductory news conference that Streeter “absolutely deserved and earned the opportunity to lead our offense.”

“But I just felt like it was the right time,” Swinney said. “We weren’t quite where we needed to be. These are hard decisions, especially when you love the people that are involved.”
