Mark Richt Out as Georgia Head Coach
Georgia head coach Mark Richt is out after 15 seasons with the program.
The school announced Sunday following a 9-3 season and a 13-7 win over arch-rival Georgia Tech on Saturday. Richt was second all-time at Georgia with 145 wins and finished with two SEC Championships.
"I appreciate the opportunity of serving the University as well as considering any other options that may present themselves in the future," Richt said in a statement.
Georgia's short list for a replacement will include Alabama defensive coordinator Kirby Smart, who played defensive back for the Bulldogs from 1995-1998. Smart began his coaching career as an administrative assistant in Athens during the 1999 season and later served as the runnings back coach under Richt in 2005.
