Today at his weekly press conference, UGA head football coach Mark Richt addressed the speculation around his name being tied to the Miami job.

“I don’t think much of it, really,” Richt said. “I love my alma mater, the U, no doubt about it, but there’s been nobody calling or writing or texting or anything like that. I’m sure they’ll find a great coach.”

Richt has been mentioned as a potential candidate for the Miami job by several national sportswriters, including Dan Wolken of USA Today.

Mark Richt played quarterback for the Miami Hurricanes from 1979 to 1982. He graduated from the U, but has never coached there. He coached at Florida State from 1985-1988 as a graduate assistant and then as the quarterbacks coach (1990-93) and QB coach/offensive coordinator (1994-00).

Miami’s head football coach, Al Golden, was fired after 4.5 seasons at the helm. On Saturday, Golden’s Hurricanes were thrashed by Clemson 58-0 at home.

    Who would ever want to leave heaven–love Athens and UGA. Only reason might be to get away from all the naysayers! I would hate to lose a good man and good coach!

    He didn’t say he would take it, but he didn’t say he would turn it down either.

    CMR’s record at UGA is more positive than negative, much more. I would hate to see him leave for any reason and certainly not because of complaining fans. Give him some time…it will get better.

    I would just actually like to see him throw his board or even a hat if he wore one down on the ground when he’s totally ticked off. It wouldn’t deny the fact he’s a true Christian and man’s man but it would show a little emotion and let the fans know that he is fed up with some of the lousy defense and offensive plays that have been portrayed this year. But as a all around coach it will be hard to find one any better.
