Mark Richt hasn't received calls on assistants

Georgia coach believes his assistants are worthy of head coaching opportunities.

Even as coaching vacancies continue to sprout up across the college football landscape, Georgia coach Mark Richt hasn't heard from anyone seeking to poach any of his assistants, according to a report in the Athens Banner-Herald.

"Not one bit," Richt told the Banner-Herald. "Can you believe that? I think our coaches are worthy of that, and I think our coaches have been obviously courted, but no one has called me."

Richt has assembled a solid staff at Georgia consisting of offensive coordinator Mike Bobo, defensive coordinator Todd Grantham and recruiting coordinator and assistant head coach Rodney Garner. Earlier this year, Bobo was named a finalist for the Broyles Award, which is handed out annually to the nation's top assistant. Both Bobo and Grantham have aspirations of one day becoming head coaches, according to the report.

No. 7 Georgia (11-2) completed its first bowl practice Wednesday in preparation of the Capital One Bowl. The Bulldogs will face No. 16 Nebraska (10-3) on Jan. 1.
