Report: "Big Football Changes" Coming At Georgia

Georgia's football program is currently in a state of uncertainty. The Bulldogs, at 5-3, are struggling this season after starting the year with SEC championship and College Football Playoff hopes.

Changes appear to be coming to Athens, Ga.

Earlier today, former Georgia star David Pollack, who's now an analyst for ESPN, posted the following cryptic tweet.

That likely has something to do with the following tweet. Atlanta's 680 The Fan is reporting that Bulldogs' defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt "could already be out."

And, now, Dan Wolken of USA Today is reporting that "big football changes" are coming.

From his report

  • Georgia athletics director Greg McGarity favored a coaching change after last season but was overruled by president Jere Morehead. Richt was then given a contract extension.
  • Regardless of the ultimate decision on Richt this time, defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt almost certainly will not be back, as his relationship with Richt and Georgia administrators has grown toxic.
  • Georgia does not have one or two mega-boosters with the influence to make the call on Richt, but the displeasure of the Bulldogs' high-dollar financial supporters has made its way to Morehead's office.
  • If Richt stays, it will be with a coaching staff that looks very different as first-year offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer has also been viewed as a problem.

It should indeed be an interesting day in Athens, Ga.
