Carter Posted November 16, 2010 Share Posted November 16, 2010 AUBURN, Ala. – Georgia athletics director Greg McGarity said today he “absolutely” expects Mark Richt to be the Bulldogs football coach next season.“I would say based on the first 10 games, no question about that,” McGarity said prior to today’s Georgia-Auburn football game. “I know we’re 5-5, but you go back and you look at all the dynamics involved, how close the games were. It’s not like we’ve been in situations of lopsided losses, of being non-competitive.”McGarity said he has not been contacted by Colorado for permission to approach Richt about the Buffaloes’ head coaching vacancy. The Denver Post has reported that Richt has emerged as a possible candidate for the job that opened with Dan Hawkins’ firing.“They need to contact me first,” said McGarity, who added that “I have seen nothing but all signs pointing to him wanting to stay at the University of Georgia. … I think it’s in our coaches’ contracts too. I’d have to check the specific language, but they’re supposed to alert us – me or the president – if there’s been any contact made by an outside group.”Richt’s current contract runs through the 2013 season, which falls under the four-year window that some coaches prefer for recruiting purposes.Asked if he agrees with the four-year thought for coaches’ contact extensions, McGarity replied, “I don’t buy into that.”"Bottom-line," he said, "it’s the relationship you have with your coaches. … Just trust the relationship you have with each other. Those are things that aren’t built in two months.”http://georgia.247sports.com/Article/McGarity-says-he-expects-Richt-to-return-5593 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
