Georgia Bulldogs offensive coordinator Mike Bobo is starting to draw interest from schools looking for new head coaches.
Georgia Bulldogs offensive coordinator Mike Bobo has helped coach the Bulldogs to a record-breaking season, netting school records in touchdowns in a season, and has the Bulldogs on pace to break records for scoring average and total offense. Those accomplishments have thrust Bobo into coaching conversations with several schools looking to fill their head coach position.
Bobo's name has come up as a possibility for the vacant position with the Southern Miss. Golden Eagles and other schools. However, if he opts not to take a head coaching position, he will likely get a pay raise from the Georgia Bulldogs. Bobo's acting agent, Russ Campbell, confirms that his client is drawing interest, but cannot go into specifics:
"I can tell you that he's getting some long overdue consideration," said Campbell. "It's unbelievable what Mike has done at Georgia; his track record speaks for itself. People are finally starting to notice."
Bobo is earning a base salary of $335,000 per year, ranked No. 10 among SEC offensive coordinators, ahead of only the Mississippi Rebels' Matt Luke and Dan Werner and Mississippi St. Bulldogs' Les Koenning. Despite all of this talk, Bobo is keeping his mind set on coaching the Bulldogs in the Capital One Bowl
