Mark Richt makes decision regarding his coaching staff

Mark Richt just wrapped up an extended post-season press conference. Richt will not make changes to the Georgia coaching staff and he will not be more involved in the offensive play-calling.

Richt said, “If you just change for the sake of changing, then all of a sudden you’ve gotta learn something all over again. Do I wanna confuse Aaron Murray? … We’re not looking to blow anything up. In my opinion we’re very close.

“Mike Bobo’s the coordinator, Mike Bobo’s the quarterbacks coach. Stacey Searels is the running game coordinator,” Richt said. “And they’ve done a great job.”

Georgia finished this season 6-7, losing to UCF in the Liberty Bowl by the score of 10-6. The Bulldogs' offense averaged 32 points per game, which was 31st nationally. The defense finished 23rd nationally in total defense.

Georgia will open the season against Boise State in Atlanta. The Bulldogs will then host South Carolina the following week. 

The SEC West cross-over games are at Ole Miss and at Vanderbilt. The non-conference schedule includes Coastal Carolina, New Mexico State, and at Georgia Tech.
