Mark Richt Not Firing Mike Bobo Or Taking Over Playcalling Duties

Wednesday morning Georgia Bulldogs coach Mark Richt gave his final press conference for the 2010 season, which also served as a look ahead to 2011. He expressed disappointment with the team's 6-7 record and his eagerness at starting 2011's schedule off with the Boise St. Broncos.

Richt also declared he wouldn't be making any major staff changes. Plenty of Bulldogs fans have grown tired of offensive coordinator MIke Bobo, but it sounds like the former QB will remain on staff and retain the same role moving forward:

We're not looking to blow anything up," Richt said. "In my opinion, we are very close. How many teams have what would be considered a down season one year and then the next year they're right there?"

There will be additional strength and conditioning hires, like former player Thomas Brown and perhaps former player Verron Haynes. And UGA does plan to add staff members to focus on nutrition, Richt said.

He emphasized "Mike Bobo is the coordinator. Mike Bobo is the quarterbacks coach," meaning the head coach has no plans to retake control of offensive playcalling.
