SEC Media Days: Mark Richt Speaks Out About Isaiah Crowell's Departure

For the first time since Isaiah Crowell's dismissal from the Georgia Bulldogs football team, head coach Mark Richt finally spoke out about the star running back today on the third day of SEC Media Days. It was a move he was likely planning for unless he wanted to say "no comment" several times.

"No decision to dismiss a guy from the team is an easy decision," Richt said. "It's always tough because I care very much about all of these guys. Having to make those kinds of decisions are tough. In the end, I think we did what was in the best interest of the program. I wish Isaiah the very best in his future and hopefully things will work out for him."

Richt was asked about whether or not he would try to flag possible problem players in the future, but he said that it's a process they already go through.

"We do find out as much as we possibly can about everybody. Threre's rules on how many times we can call a kid, how many times we can see a kid in person and all that type of thing. We maximize those things and we do care very much about asking those types of questions and we'll continue to do that."

Crowell transferred to Alabama State two weeks ago.
