It’s getting hot in Athens

September 26, 2010

Richt's future is in the hands of QB Aaron Murray (#11)

Mark Richt’s embarrassing loss to Mississippi State this past Saturday (12-24) puts Georgia 0-3 in conference play and is causing concern in Athens. When Mark Richt took over the reins in 2001, he had great expectations for the Bulldogs and did not disappoint. During his coaching tenure at Georgia, he’s amassed a 7-2 bowl record while bringing home 2 SEC Championships and 4 SEC East Division titles. He also has an impressive 91-30 record as the head coach and won at least 8 games every season. Unfortunately, Richt is having a disastrous 2010 campaign compiling a 1-3 record while posting a lone win over Louisiana-Lafayette. With a 1-3 mark, the pressure is mounting for Richt to start winning meanwhile the chatter about a coaching change is growing.

Former AD Damon Evans has publicly been supportive of Richt and always tempered any rumors about Richt being under fire. However, with Evans out following his DUI arrest, AD Greg McGarity took control and is not pleased with Georgia’s seven players arrested since March and A.J. Green suspended for selling his game worn jersey.

During Green’s suspension Georgia is posting an 0-3 record in SEC play in which his services were sorely missed. The Bulldogs who have yet to face Florida, Auburn, and Tennessee may not get out of the season over .500. Last season Richt was a disappointing 8-5, this season an 8-5 record would be anything short of a miracle.

There is no denying Richt’s accomplishments at Georgia. He is adorned by his fans and he has a lot of supporters in powerful positions. With Richt’s history at Georgia, the AD will certainly be patient with the ball coach, but Richt’s leash is getting shorter and shorter as his team is slowly failing on and off the field.

If Georgia doesn’t start posting wins soon, Richt’s seat will definitely be a fire.
