Mike Bobo wants to be a head coach one day

The longtime Georgia assistant coach said that he'd like to have a program of his own at some point, but is committed to the Dawgs for now.

Georgia Bulldogs offensive coordinator Mike Bobo said on Monday that he would someday like to run his own program as a head coach, but that he's focused on his job at Georgia:

"I think we all aspire to run your own program one day," said Bobo, who has been Georgia’s offensive coordinator since 2007 and quarterbacks coach since 2001. "But I’m just constantly trying to learn and get better. If stuff like that happens, it happens. If not, not. I’m just really worried about what I can control and that’s coaching here right now."

Except for one season, Bobo has spent his entire career at Georgia, as either a player, graduate assistant, or an assistant coach. He refused to comment on whether he had interviewed for any other jobs this year.

The Georgia offense had a great season in 2012, scoring over 37 points per game and racking up over 458 yards per game. They were paced by a tandem of freshmen running backs, Todd Gurley and Keith Marshall, and figure to remain potent for the next several seasons.

The Dawgs will face the Nebraska Cornhuskers in the Capital One Bowl on New Year's Day. Kickoff from Orlando is scheduled for 1 p.m. ET, and the game can be seen nationally on ABC.
