Charlie Tamayo, who was an assistant coach for Georgia’s gymnastics team, is no longer with the program.
“I have performance expectations for myself, my assistants, our student-athletes, and all the staff members in the gymnastics program,” head coach Courtney Kupets Carter said in a statement. “Those performance expectations were not being met at an acceptable level.”
Tamayo joined Kupets Carter’s coaching staff in May 2017. Tamayo was an assistant coach for the Navy men’s gymnastics team for one year prior to coming to Georgia. He also has experience coaching at the youth level.
When Tamayo competed as an elite gymnast for Cuba, he won a bronze medal on vault at the 2001 world championships.
Josh Overton is now the only assistant coach on Georgia’s staff, while former Georgia head coach Suzanne Yoculan Leebern, who led Georgia to 10 national titles, is the volunteer assistant coach. One month into Kupets Carter’s first season at the helm of the program, the GymDogs are ranked 14th in the country.
Georgia will compete against Missouri in Stegeman Coliseum on Saturday.
