Embattled Georgia football coach Mark Richt, who led Georgia to the SEC East regular season title with a victory over Kentucky on Saturday, will leave the program at the end of the season according to inside sources.
Top candidates to replace Richt reportedly are Tennessee coach Derek Dooley and Georgia offensive coordinator Mike Bobo. Dooley is the son of Vince Dooley, longtime Bulldogs coach/athletic director and an Athens icon.
Richt’s job was reportedly on the line this season especially after an 0-2 start, but the Bulldogs rallied to win nine straight games to capture the SEC East title.
Sources in the South Carolina/Georgia area say that Richt will pursue outside interests and decide on his own not to return to Georgia.
Richt was hired as head coach of the Bulldogs before the 2001 season, replacing Jim Donnan. He has won two outright SEC championships, four SEC East titles and led Georgia to a finish in the AP Top 10 five times.
