Earlier today, we told you about Mark Richt’s intense team meeting on Wednesday night, but have you heard about his interview with WCNN in Atlanta on Thursday morning?
Richt may have been better off keeping this close to the vest.
Asked about the process of setting up the season-opener against Boise State, Richt explained, “[The athletic director] came to me with that and he was like, ‘Well, that quarterback's a senior and he's leaving.' I really didn't look at it. I knew that he had been there a long enough time that he was probably on the way out. After we signed on the dotted line, then I went and looked at the depth chart and realized he was still there. Then I was hoping he would turn pro early and he didn't do that."
Hard to tell if Richt was joking.
If not, ouch.
You can listen to the interview, right here.
UPDATE: Twitter is blowing up. People are saying it was a booster club joke, but that Richt should have clarified that.
