ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Jonas Hayes, who played three years at Georgia with his twin brother Jarvis Hayes, has been promoted to assistant coach with the Bulldogs.
Jonas Hayes worked on coach Mark Fox's staff last season as basketball operations coordinator. His duties included recruiting.
Hayes, an Atlanta native, joined the Georgia staff in 2012 after five years as an assistant at Belmont Abbey in Belmont, N.C.
He played at Georgia from 2002-04, starting 41 of 88 games and averaging 8.6 points and 4.9 rebounds. His career high of 25 points came in a double-overtime win over Georgia Tech.
Fox says Hayes' area connections and "magnetic personality" will be assets in recruiting.
Georgia assistant Kwanza Johnson resigned on May 10 to accept a similar job at Texas Christian.
