Report: Mark Richt Will Not Coach Bulldogs During Georgia's Bowl Game

Former Georgia head coach Mark Richt will reportedly be named the new head coach at the University of Miami Friday morning, according to multiple reports.

It's happening fast, and the move may turn out to be even more difficult on UGA players than previously believed, because Richt, who was recently fired by Georgia, will not remain in Athens long enough to coach the Bulldogs during their bowl game, according to ESPN's Brett McMurphy.

With Richt out, it appears wide receivers coach Bryan McClendon will take over as head coach for the bowl game, according to WSB Sports Director Zach Klein.

These things are never easy for the players involved, but college football is ultimately a business.
