Kirk Olivadotti Tabbed For Inside Linebackers

Posted Jan 16, 2014

The Washington Redskins announced today that they have named Kirk Olivadotti as Inside Linebackers Coach.

The Washington Redskins announced today that they have named Kirk Olivadotti as Inside Linebackers Coach.

After three years coaching inside linebackers at the University of Georgia from 2011-13, Olivadotti returns to the Redskins, with whom he spent 11 NFL seasons in various capacities from 2000-10.

Olivadotti is one of 11 members of the Redskins’ assistant coach honor roll, which recognizes coaches with at least 10 seasons of service as an assistant in Washington.

At Georgia, Olivadotti coached a linebacker corps that produced NFL draft picks Akeem Dent, Jarvis Jones and Alec Ogletree.

The Bulldogs averaged 10 wins a season in Olivadotti’s three years, including ending the 2012 season with a 12-2 record and a No. 5 national ranking.

Olivadotti’s NFL career began as a defensive quality control coach with the Redskins in 2000.

He served in that role for four seasons and also helped coach defensive backs.

He continued as quality control coach in 2004, but also took on a role assisting the Redskins' special teams units. 

In 2006, his role expanded to working with the Redskins' defensive line before he took over as linebackers coach in 2007.

During Olivadotti’s previous 11-season tenure with the club, the Redskins finished in the top 10 in the NFL in total defense on eight occasions.

The Redskins allowed an average of 313.1 yards per game in Olivadotti’s 11 years on staff, fourth-fewest in the NFC and seventh-fewest in the NFL in that time frame.

Olivadotti, 40, was a four-year letter-winner as a wide receiver at Purdue from 1993-96. 

He earned his bachelor’s degree in education and his master’s degree in education administration, both from Purdue.

He is the son of Tom Olivadotti, a long-time defensive coach in the NFL with Cleveland, Miami, Minnesota, the New York Giants and Houston.
