Based on the UGA press release and the AJC article this means just about nothing. It sounds like a job title change to warrant an off cycle compensation adjustment.
If you're worried about Rodney Garner being pissed....until yesterday he made about twice what Jancek made...as the lowest paid member of the coaching staff over the age of 28. And if Jancek is such an invaluable member of the brain trust, why was he the lowest paid member of the staff until McClendon came on board?
I don't get it. But I seriously doubt it matters regarding the '09 season.
