Contract extension likely for Mark Richt, but what about Todd Grantham?

ATHENS — It’s reasonable to assume — and we have to assume since Athletic Director Greg McGarity is reserving comment — that Georgia will extend the contract of head coach Mark Richt after the season  if the Bulldogs get past Kentucky on Saturday to secure a spot in the SEC Championship Game.

Richt has only two years remaining on his agreement following this season and it would only seem logical that UGA would lengthen that by at least three or four years sometime after the season.

But there’s another contract matter with which the 15th-ranked Bulldogs are going to have to deal if the season continues to progress as it has.

The three-year contract that Todd Grantham signed to come to Georgia to coach its defense expires on Jan. 31, 2013. And while that’s still 14 months away, what the Bulldogs’ defensive coordinator has done on his side of the ball in Year Two has made him a pretty hot commodity.

So says Grantham’s agent, at least. Michael Harrison, an attorney out of Stevenson Ranch, Calif., said he has already “gotten inquiries” from some NFL teams about the possibility of his client returning to that league as a coordinator. Harrison also said he has “gotten feelers” indirectly from colleges gauging Grantham’s interest in becoming a head coach.

Grantham came to UGA from the Dallas Cowboys, where he coached linebackers, and he was a defensive coordinator for the Cleveland Browns before that. It’s Grantham’s stated desire to one day become a head coach — the buyout in his contract is waived if he does — and several college positions have already opened up. More will surely become available at the conclusion of the regular season, and Harrison expects Grantham to be a part of those conversations.

“Todd wants to be at Georgia, though,” Harrison insisted. “But we’d like to get an extension.”

Here’s the rub: McGarity is not likely to be keen on providing multi-year deals for assistant coaches. It’s something he never did in 18 years as Jeremy Foley’s right-hand man at Florida.

Georgia’s multi-year contract for Grantham was executed by former UGA Athletic Director Damon Evans, who previously also had not offered extended deals for assistants. Grantham is the among the top three highest-paid coordinators in college football at $750,000 a year, according to a survey by USA Today, and the only UGA assistant coach with a multi-year deal.

How McGarity might actually feel about the situation we have no way of knowing because he’s not willing to comment on it at this point.

“We don’t talk about anything like that during the season,” McGarity said Monday, referring to both Richt and Grantham. “Our full focus is on our players and our opponent and right now that is Kentucky. We’ll deal with all that after the season.”

Asked whether the decision on Grantham would ultimately be his, McGarity said, “the head coach makes decisions on his staff.” But you can be sure McGarity will have input.

This much is also certain: Georgia’s defense has looked a lot better under Grantham’s guidance. After Georgia’s 45-7 win over No. 20 Auburn this past Saturday, the Bulldogs (8-2, 6-1 SEC) moved up to No. 4 in the nation in total defense. They’re also No. 5  against the run, No. 5 against the pass and they lead the SEC in quarterback sacks and tackles for loss. The TD it allowed in the first quarter against the Tigers was just the ninth in the last eight games against the defense.

In fact, Georgia’s defense has improved significantly in national ranking in every category kept in Year Two of Grantham’s leadership.

2010—-Defensive category—–2011

24————-Total————-4

27————-Rush————-5

72———–Pass Eff. ———–5

34————Passing———-15

40————Scoring———-12

51————-TFLs———–10

52————-Sacks———–25

The improvement over 2009, before Grantham was defensive coordinator, is even more significant.

Of course, Grantham does not come without faults. He was roundly criticized for making choke signs at a Florida kicker as he prepared to make the game-winning kick against Georgia in overtime in 2010. And Grantham ended up in a shouting match with Vanderbilt head coach James Franklin at the end of the Vanderbilt game last month. Both incidents resulted in internal reprimands from UGA and certainly could be a factor in any job considerations going forward.

Harrison said he does not believe it will be an issue. “A lot of people want a coach with Todd’s fire and passion for the game,” he said.

Certainly it would be in Richt’s best interest to keep Grantham. Richt has spoken glowingly recently of his defense and its coordinator.

“It’s a lot more fun to coach when you’ve got a good defense and the guys are playing the way our guys are playing,” Richt said Saturday. “It makes up for a lot of deficiencies. It just kind of helps you iron some things out sometimes. . . . Todd studies defenses and offenses as well as anybody I’ve been around. He will have a plan and he will understand what needs to be done. But then he’ll try to make it as simple as possible for our guys. He understands tendencies, he understands formations and groups and when different guys are in the game. He knows the percentages and he’s got fire in his belly. He’s really doing a great job.”

So I put the question to you. Should the Bulldogs move to lock up Grantham as soon as they can for as long as they can? Or should Georgia remain guarded in their approach to long-term contracts?

McGarity can blow it like was done with BVG or he can lock Grantham down for the same number of years as Richt.

Lose him and Richt will be back to hiring another DC and all the momentum we have gained will be trashed.

We have all bashed Bobo too but, I really think the 3 coaches need to stay together.

Bobo is a DGD and loyal. Even if he got moved to QB coach only, he is very valuable as a recruiter.

Stability is a rare thing these days in college football.

Who cares what was done at florida?

They fire coaches at the drop of a hat and Muschamp is next.

I’m worried about Grantham leaving, but that is a good sign for our program. Hopefully we have enough young guys that know the system that we could pick up another young 3-4 D-coordinator if he does go. I say you extend him with a nice salary bump to avoid him leaving. If he does anyway (a strong possibility for a head coaching gig), go find a replacement.

Extending Richt is absolutely the right thing to do. He has proven that the slump is over. This team is YOUNG and is poised for a good 2-4 year run if we keep the staff.

Want to know what will happen?

Grantham will leave.

Recruits will go to other schools because of the perceived lack of stability and commitment from the AD to the staff despite winning the SEC East.

You Thomas Brown the idiot, will then blather on and complain about how Richt can’t recruit and that another coach should be hired.

If this staff continues the rest of the season as it has thus far and ends up 11-3 with the lose coming in the SECCG then hell yes you extend both of them. In fact you go and make CTG the highest paid DC in the nation due to the fact that he has those options unlike many other college DC of going to the NFL as a DC.

Georgia should never take the position as the rest of the “followers”, waiting to see what some other teams/universities are doing. Take the lead demmit. Grantham has reversed a 7-8 year trend. Even if he is the highest paid assistant, he has done his job and what he was brought here for. It’s pretty simple really, does Richt/McGarrity want this to continue? If so, sit down with Grantham and pay him what he is worth with some security. If not, look for Grantham to bolt.

Extend Grantham to whatever length Richt gets, keep the salary where it is or modest boost, and tie bonus payouts to defensive metrics that if reached would make him the highest paid DC in CFB. If he chooses to go elsewhere for a Pro or HC position than we will just have to thank him and wish him well.

Extend CMR for 4 more years minimum, extend CTG the same amount of time and give him a raise. CMB is doing a great job as OC and I don’t think he is going anywhere. When you have players that can play and know their assignment and execute those assignments, then the OC and DC look great. That is what we have going for us at UGA. Keep the “big mo” rolling and beat UK, the Gnats and then on to the SECCG. But, it won’t surprise me if we come out a little flat against UK, but we still should win going away.
Can anyone explain the tie breaker in the West if Arkansas happens to beat LSU? That is 3 teams with one loss and they all have beaten each other.

CTG has done a phenomenal job with the defense. With the way the team has played, they do not have to make any apologies for their performance. Players play the games that are set before. If anything, I wish we could have played Boise State with the same intensity that’s being demonstrated now. However UGA has always played better when they are in the role of the underdog. At least over the tenure of Coach Mark Richt. If we are now willing to walk in the so call “Big Boy Shoes” of the SEC, it requires the team being able to consistently perform as the Lead Dog and not the backup. Going Forward, I don’t think it will make a difference if we lock Coach TY or not because if the defense has another powerful year next year, he is probably gone anyway. But I do believe that we made the correct hire became the guy from Air Force who everybody was high on at the time ( I think his name is spelled Tim DeGuyter), has done nothing but make Mike Sherman’s job even hotter at Texas A&M. Even Manny Diaz, formerly of Mississippi State, has had struggles at Texas although this is his 1st year there.

While co-ordinators get all the credit for turnaround, they also get all of the blame when things don’t go as well. And it does happen. Having assistants signed to multi-year deals is loaded with complication, not the very least, boxes in the HC with this and his other guys. Where do you draw the line?

That being said, I sure want to retain Grantham, but co-ordinators come and go and that will never change. The appropriate handling is keeping up with current salary expectations and having a “reasonable” contract term. Plus you can’t really force the issue, anyway. If somebody wants him, they all have the cash to do it, so if he wants to go, he will go. Would you really want him forced to stay (contractually) ?

Ironically, the actualy thing that will keep Grantham here is somehting that many fans have complained about ad-naseum……..Richt is a very good boss to work for.

I think that signing Grantham to a 3 to 5 year extension is just as important as signing CMR. He coached in the NFL for 11 years and was used to dealing with men. Nothing Grantham has done deserves a reprimand in my opinion because we are coaching 18 to 24 year old young men not 7 year old kid’s, they can handle it. It took him a while to learn what is acceptable and not but anybody that show’s unconditional support like he did when he took up for his player against the Vanderbilt coach has my vote and complete support. The money contributors at Georgia who control everything need’s to get behind Grantham with a long term extension. His agent has already stated that Grantham would like an extension and a lot of great recruit’s on defense are showing a lot of interest. We don’t need to blow it again like we did with Van Gorder.

Matthews Dawg,

If Arkansas beats LSU and there is a three way tie with Bama, then if 2 of the highest ranked teams are within 5 places in the BCS, then the tiebreaker is the head to head among the 2 schools.

There is no doubt that Bama and Arkansas would be within 5 spots of each other in this scenario.

My guess is that Bama and Arkansas would jump LSU in the BCS and thus Bama goes to the SECCG based on the Tide steamrolling the Hogs back in September.

LSU can not afford to lose to Arkansas at this point if the Tigers want to keep their national title hopes alive.

Oh, for cryin’ out loud. I have never seen a collections of idiots as this blog. It seems that no matter what the coaches do, they are not good enough. If UGA wins, it’s because the other team (which was good before the game) is weak and a cupcake. It cannot be because this young team has gotten better as the season rolls along, largely due to being “coached up”. If fans get arrested for misconduct after the biggest game Georgia has played this year (arguably), who can blame them for celebrating, other that the AJC. Why is that newsworthy? It was a huge win for the program.

And finally, if UGA plays like they did on Saturday, I think that they match up well with LSU or Bama, and frankly, I think that Bama has the best team and Miles has a four leaf clover up his bum. Make any of those kicks and no OT in that game. I would rather see them play LSU, thank you very much.

The Dawgs should definitely lock up Grantham and give Richt an extension. Make Grantham the highest paid assistant in college football if you have to. This man knows his stuff, and would be a huge asset to the program both on the field and in the revenue department. Having a legit defense is key to UGA football. This is not a school that wants to have to outscore teams nor is it good at it. We’ve been down this road with Van Gorder before. Lets not do it again with Grantham and let him get out of here.

So LSU is 10-0, after having beaten #3 Bama and #4 Oregon as well as these ranked teams at the time Miss St, West Virginia, Florida and Auburn, because Miles is lucky?

If Auburn’s “O” Coordinator “M” is worth a Million per year, then I think UGA “D” Coordinator ‘TG” is worth a Million per year. I don’t want to hear we don’t have the money. UGA is one of the most secure financial programs in the SEC. The fan’s have embraced the new look “D” and a change in leadership would be sucide for both head coach “MR” and athletic director “GM”. They can play politcs all they want by saying wait until the season is over. That fine, looks good in the press, but get off the money and pay the help what they are worth. It’s not going to break the bank. …NOTE… Give Coach “R” an extention but no more money is already making enough. The raise you would give coach “MR”. Take that and pay the assistance and give extentions where valid.. Coach “TG” is more than valid. I think Coach “MR” would be goog with that.

AR, if Ark beats LSU and the others keep winning then I think the BCS rankings would be Ok St, Bama, Oregon and Arkansas. Ok St will have beaten OU which knocks them out of contention. It is possible that Ark could be 3rd and Oregon 4th. Nevertheless the Tide and Hogs would be within 5 places of each other and Tide would go to the SECCG.

You are right that a LSU loss to Ark creates a mess.

Yet it’s no given that even if LSU or Bama make it to the SECCG that they will beat UGA. If the Dawgs win that could lead to a Ok St-Oregon national title game.

UGA gave South Carolina 28 of its 45 points. As for the 50 post game arrests, big deal. If you read, the majority of arrests were for underaged drinking, and I can’t imagine that the 50 arrests didn’t include some Auburn folks. You figure there were over 100,000 people in town on Satuday, and 50 were arrested, half for underaged drinking. Who cares. Georgia returns most everyone next year, and should have a fine team.

I think we now know Georgia is capable of upsetting anyone in the SECCG. Capable but unprobable. Although stranger things have happened. Georgia upsetting the West winner paves the way to exclude SEC from the championship game. The Cartel would not be opposed to that either.

Georgia football is not really Georgia football unless we have a punishing defense. I know we haven’t played Bama, LSU, or Arkansas this season but we can only play the teams on our schedule and the SEC determines who plays who each year. But this is the best defense I’ve seen played in Athens since the BVG days. We need to lock Grantham up as DC for the long term. And one more thing . . . I’ve never hated the man but I’ve been as critical of Richt as anybody. And he still does some things that drive me crazy but I’d have to give the man his due. Up to this point he’s done a hell of a coaching job getting us to 8-2 . . . maybe his best job of team leadership yet. And if he can get us to 10-2 and into the SEC championship game, I will admit that he deserves to be extended for another 3 years. I love my Bulldawgs . . . look forward to the season all year long . . . and will always want them to be the best they can be. I just haven’t always been convinced that Richt was going about his job the best way possible. But thus far I’d have to admit that maybe Coach Richt really does know “what the hell he’s doing.” And whatever has changed for the better in our last 10 games, please keep it up because Kentucky’s whole year can be made by tripping us up and Tech with their option game is always a threat. But for the first time in a long time on Saturday I could honestly say we GATA on both sides of the ball!

[...] I say whatever Todd Grantham wants, Todd Grantham gets.  Defense wins championships, and a defense that is only giving up 13 ppg will win you a championship.  We can spend all offseason talking about who is coming back, but the Dawgs will have a TON of talent back from this year’s team back next season.  [...]

Re-sign Grantham now. If they wait until UGA beats LSU and wins their BCS bowl game this year the price will be sky-high.

I have a sense there is a window of opportunity for this team to accomplish big things. They are poised to get a shot at an SEC Championship this year, and with a full year of experience all the young talent should be primed for next season. I’m not one of those cynical people wearing blinders who think it’s National Championship or failure; the Dawg’s rebound and improvement we’ve witnessed this season has been a great success. It sure was exciting to watch the smack-down delivered Saturday.

I think CTG would stay at UGA with a extension out to be 3 years again and a raise…..but……..It’s McGarity’s call and he say’s he doesn’t like deals for assit. over one year. CTG will leave if only offered a year to year deal and no more money….He’s young and he’s hot right now, and this is his time. Dawgs have always been cheap with assit. coach’s, with this current deal for CTG the exception. The only thing that might keep him here one more year without all that is that the defense next year will be better than this years and might want to see that through….and get even a better deal somewhere………………..Somewhere in the back of my mind, I don’t think Richt cares if he leave or not. Just me.

I don’t think there is much question UGA has a solid core of talent on-par with the big boys. A lot of that talent is very young (Freshmen, redshirt freshmen); Boise and SC exposed that youth early in the season, and quite frankly we’d expect an LSU to do the same in the Dome (if they get there). But UGA has a stable of top-shelf offensive talent, an offense more potent than Alabama, and a pretty darn good defense. Right now I think UGA has the POTENTIAL to line up and make a game out it with pretty much anybody. LSU has the potential to steamroll over them, too. We’ll see.

Grantham has probably earned an extension. I just saw where the Dawgs have the fourth-ranked defense in college football. That’s quite a turnaround from Willie Martinez’s regime. In Richt’s case, however, an extension is probably premature. Given the current level of competition in the SEC Eastern Division, let’s see how the Dawgs do against LSU as well as next season before McGarity starts adding more years to those already remaining on CMR’s contract.

While Richt does a lot of things the way they should be done, I am not nearly as sold on him and his coaching skills as I was four years ago. Consistency is the hallmark of great coaching, and we haven’t seen a lot of that in Athens over the last four seasons, especially in his selection of assistants.

Heck yeah! extend coach Grantham’s contract and Coach Richt for 5 more years but I still do not trust Bobo. we played very well against Auburn, however when things doesn’t work well in the game Bobo tends to screw up and make terrible calls!!! punt the ball is not a bad call!!! and now you know you have a solid D that you can depend on!
I have a feeling that Georgia is on the right track, our offensive line is solid and we have plenty of weapons at WR and RB and a fine QB. Our D is Rock Solid and scary!! if it wasn’t for our terrible special teams plays many games will not be that close!! if we dont turn the ball over I like our chances against LSU but we need to step on the bugs first.

I think UGA as a program is capable of winning the east every year. No national program better than UGA is going to scoop up Mark Richt or Todd Grantham. He’s a great guy and all but he hasn’t played for the National Championship once. He hasn’t won the SEC with Urban or Saban in the league.

John Chavis and Nick Saban call outstanding defensive schemes.

I think UGA has enough talent to pull from in the Atlanta area alone to win multiple national titles down the road. He just changed his juco philosphy this year while his behind was on the line.

I don’t go to sleep at night and think Richt and Grantham is better than LSU or Bama. And I never will.

He doesn’t have the blood in the water mentality. I think those guys should prove themselves next year. If Grantham wants to leave so be it. There’s 100 guys out there who would love to coach a program as good as UGA.

Grantham is a fiery coach that players respond to. I think the other coaches benefit from it as well. He has the defense playing as good as any defense we have ever had. They are big, fast and attack. Both sides of the scrimmage were totally controlled. Lets give out some to Coach Joe T as well. There is a remarkable difference this year. We are wearing the opposing team down. Coach Richt has stood tall and took a lot of abuse. I think he has shown some fire in him and we all him respect. Give the extension.

Then we got best of West to such as Midnight Escaping Artist Peturdo, Got No Nuts, Dan Mullethead, Les Nessman the Jerk, Satan, and Cheeze Whez.

Dawgs got a bright futures with the sorry other teams coaching and we just got to lock in dominants with staff. I knew Coach Richt being Christian would help eose talents once we casts out the bad attitudes of Ealy and King.

Now we reloading for Dream Team II and got to have coaches to seal the deal in recruitings. Then once we lock up state talents we run ownership of SEC and BCS like we suppose to do as Big Dawgs!

Many of us should have receserved our judgement till after the season. To many went to the trend of the past 3 years after the 0-2 start when they should have seen how this team and coaching staff handled this entire season.

Richt is a good coach. When he brought Brian Van Gorder, he was bringing his alter-ego. It worked. Richt the calm, cool, and collected…BVG the amped-up, raucous, motivator that went 100 mph all the time. The back with a front, the top with a bottom, the ying and the yang. Richt’s teams began to slide slowly, when the defense could not match the production of the offense, and the offense was asked to often to save the day.

I have said 1000 times, that Alabama has always seemingly had the recipe for success. Great running game, a quarterback who manages the game and simply doesn’t lose it for his team, and a great, aggressive, defense.

Georgia has that and then some. Looking at this team, there is a bright future on hand when you consider how much production came from freshmen, red shirt freshmen, and sophomores.

Grantham has had a few moments of looking as though he lost his mind. You know what? So what. He is the “D” coordinator that fits in the mold of Erk Russell and B.V.G. and those guys to just grow on trees.

UGA needs to extend both Richt and Grantham and lock them so there is a lock down on this groups continuity.

Why don’t we wait until next year to offer contract extensions? Let’s see if it was a weak Eastern division or great coaching by finding out what they do in 2012? If the Dawgs have a great year then as well, by all means, reward them well.

On a different note, I don’t think anyone who called for a new coaching staff at the beginning of the year is a “hater.” Quite the contrary. These are people who love the Dawgs and think they deserve great coaching. I sincerely believe that, by turning up the heat, those fans (and I am one of them) brought about the incentive to ditch the status quo and, by doing so, we are now having a great season. Kudos to Coach Richt and to Coach Grantham for the way they responded. GO DAWGS!

My View

November 14th, 2011
1:20 pm

I think Grantham has done a great job. I thought he did well in 2010 considering it was our first year in the D and he took over a unit that was becoming a joke in the CFB world. Desmond Howard called the Dawgs defense a “swiss cheese defense” on college gameday in 2009. Not the way UGA wants to be viewed nationally.

It is simple.

Wait until the season has finished. See how Georgia performs against Kentucky, GA. Tech (hopefully LSU or Alabama – even if Arkansas wins they will not be in the dome) and then the bowl game.

Look at the entire body of work and extend. Only caveat might be how it could help lock down a few kids recruiting wise.

UGA will get waxed by whoever represents the West. The top 3 of LSU, Bama and Arkansas are head and shoulders above everyone else in the conference. UGA would be only 4th at best if they were in the West. Soft schedule is the only reason they are where they are now. And those first two losses are looking even worse now that it is obvious that Boise and Carolina aren’t what they were cracked up to be.

JB, the only exception to your post I have is this. There were MANY people attacking Richt personally. When you go after a man taking jabs at his Faith, it’s personal whether a person wants it to be or not. People who do not understand being a Christian took shots that were indecent, classless, immoral, immature, and just plain ignorant. It’s an up hill climb to be able to beat LSU but anything is possible. And if he pulls that off (unless it’s Arkansas, then we have as good a shot as any), I can’t wait to hear the “Thomas Browns” on here then.

DawginLex, you write this or NOT, sir ?

(1) No one is going to do anything that Chip Towers says in this blog post today, this entire season. Mr. Towers says that Greg McGarity told him that. You are not going to change that. (2) Todd Grantham ALREADY has an out-clause in his contract. He will retain that in his new contract. Todd has zero intentions of remaining Defensive Coordinator for Mark Richt. He has every intention of more. You are not going to change that. (3) The market price for Todd Grantham is going way up. We pay the monies or we lose all the momentum gained, according to you. We should do that, no matter what. There is nothing you can do about that either. (4) Are we finished discussing what you erroneously put above, sir, and can now get to the issue ? The issue is in case you have forgotten what YOU WRITE TO THIS BLOG SIR, that Mark Richt has done little this year to-date to warrant a CONTRACT EXTENSION or a RAISE, or BOTH. He has beat Florida Tennessee and Auburn this year; and they have combined for 15 Losses already, a Loss Total of which the 3 of them have no attained in the last 3 decades, not in 30 years have FL TN AU lost 15 games in a season. Auburn loses to Alabama. There is every reason to believe, that the LOSS TOTAL of AU FL TN is going UP before this season is over. For this, sir, you want to now give MARK RICHT AND EXTENSION and a RAISE, or BOTH. I asked you a simple question. Did you say that or you did not say that ? And, I asked you another simple question. Are you saying that Mark Richt gets a CONTRACT EXTENSION and a RAISE or BOTH because he has beat 3 teams this season who have combined to have their worst seasons in 3 decades ? (5) This is not about Todd Grantham. Todd’s issue is totally separate from Mark Richt’s. You linked the 2 together when until this post just now I have made no comment about anything but that Mark Richt has NOT done diddle-e-squat beating 3 teams who have not in 30 years combined to do worse than they ALREADY HAVE with 15 LOSSES to-date, and MORE TO COME.

I disagree. This bunch of Dawgs has grown immensely as a team since those 1st two games, and Richt and staff should get the credit for that. Assuming they get by Kentucky, whoever they play in the Dome will see a fired up Georgia team who will be ready to play. UGA’s defense is every bit as good as LSU’s, and our offense I believe is superior to theirs right now. If LSU is the opponent, I like our chances.

But, it doesn’t mean he doesn’t respect him or thinks he does a good job. I’m not saying that is what you said, but just making a comment. Keep backing the Dawgs!

I was at the game Sat night and walked thru Old Campus to downtown after the game. I thought the trash problem was fixed? I wouldn’t blame UGA for not allowing people to tailgate on that part of the grounds. The area closest to the Library was a mess and the closer you got to Broad street it was cleaner. Do they have a crew that goes around and cleans up the mess? We brought friends to the game and it was a joke on how bad that looked. Before the game they were like, this is beautiful, after the game, not so much!! Just wondering.

He deserves a chance at that and I’m guessing that he’ll have offers. It’s hard to believe, if that’s his goal, that he will stick around.

Sure, give Grantham an extension, but put some kind of clause in it so he has to pay a whole lot if he leaves early, or gets a whole lot if he stays for 5-10 years. Make sure you also put in a morals clause too, just in case he gets a taste for red panties…. Wonder if you can put a non-compete clause in his contract so that he can’t move to another SEC school? We really ought to think about that.

Don’t really mean much though, if the NFL wants him, HE IS GONE! You think he wouldn’t like to coach in the NFL again as DC, or HC? Luckily, I don’t see any other SEC teams that need coaches (well, are going to switch anyway) this year so I don’t see any other college team stealing him away as long as we pay him about $1.5M/year minimum. He’s got it good right now, and he knows it. Now, if Saban, Spurrier, Dooley the kid, Mushchump, or the voodoo king were to jump ship (or get kicked out) in a couple of years, there’ll be no amount of money that will keep him here as DC if he can move into a HC position.

And Richt brought him here and put all this together, so keep Richt. Unless you guys really want Muschamp (remember that guy?). I’m sure he’ll be available in a year or two. heh heh

Why are we talking about Todd Grantham and where his total defense ranks nationally but they never talk about where Mark Richt’s total offense rank nationally?

Had they ran the football against Boise St and SC the way they crushed AU’s defense, we would be looking at a 10-0 record instead of 8-2 record and we probably would be in the top 10 in total offense. They should do everything in their power to sign Todd Grantham too a long term contract.

Thomas Brown is really having a tough time reading. UGA just played Auburn and won. Auburn was in the BCS top 25 at the time of the game. Now, normally I don’t buy into the “when we played them bit” but you better believe that if Auburn would have won, all we would have heard was “can’t beat a ranked team” .. so Thomas Brown, yes, Auburn was ranked in the BCS top 25 which counts more to EVERYONE than the wittle AP poll does.

UGA played Florida after a bye week with brantley back as QB, AL and LSU both played floridas second and third string QB, UGA played SC with Lattimore healthy and still dominated the game but lost it due to special teams and turn overs. I think UGA has a better chance at beating AL and LSU as anyone. If the offence is clicking on all cylinders and special teams does not screw up UGA will win. AU was never in this game UGA totally dominated them. Dont forget UGA finished the FL game on the 1 yard line and took a knee. CMR is not going to run up scores when not needed like Saben at AL.

Sic em, Dawgs! CTG is obviously the real deal, and his NFL experience is what recruits want. They want to play for a guy who can get them to the next level. CMR has allowed CMB the time to become a real OC. Pay them all what they deserve! The problem with “us” UGA fans is that we see all the NC being spread around the SEC and we want GA to hurry up and win one. We are a “give it to me now” society! There isn’t a better head coach out there than what we have. Within the next year there won’t be a better DC, and don’t be surprised when CMB gets offers rolling in. Pay them, rebuilding sucks and “us” Ga fans don’t won’t to go through it again.

But, it doesn’t mean he doesn’t respect him or thinks he does a good job. I’m not saying that is what you said, but just making a comment. Keep backing the Dawgs!

I was at the game Sat night and walked thru Old Campus to downtown after the game. I thought the trash problem was fixed? I wouldn’t blame UGA for not allowing people to tailgate on that part of the grounds. The area closest to the Library was a mess and the closer you got to Broad street it was cleaner. Do they have a crew that goes around and cleans up the mess? We brought friends to the game and it was a joke on how bad that looked. Before the game they were like, this is beautiful, after the game, not so much!! Just wondering.

After the season (when contracts are historically negotiated) extend Richt to 5 years to cover recruits being recruited now and give CTG an extension out to 3 years (which was unheard of when he got this contract) and pay him $1 mil. Richt gets a modest increase with his extension for getting back to the SECCG, and a bigger increase if he wins that game. Plus all the assistants get significant increases and two year contracts and lets make one of them special teams coordinator for pete’s sake.

In years past UGA has had the gauntlet schedule so its about time UGA caught a scehdule break and no fan of UGA should have to defend the damn schedule.

So we have then played 6 common opponents and then 2-3 FBS schools. So in reality what seperated the schedule is at most one tough game? Schedule talk is B.S.

For Grantham to leave now would be counter productive as his defense is just coming together. Not only is there the possibility of him being looked at as a Head Coach but Bobo could also be tabbed for a head coaching position as well. While there has been a lot of calling for Bobo to be fired from people on these blogs The fact that he has recruited and the likes of Stafford, Green, Moreno, Duran, Murray, Figgins, Crowell, and Mitchell will make some of these schools take notice of him. The mistakes Grantham made in the choke sign and the words after the Vandy game a issues that were handled by the school and should be in the past. They should be reguarded as lessons in refinement and let it go as that. I think three more years at Georgia would raise Granthans stock as Head Coach material. Getting to Atlanta this year will tell if this team is for real or not and if they can play with the big boys as some folks put it.

No extension for anyone until after the season ends. Hopefully that will be in January. That will give the staff an entire month to show recruits how stable the program is.

Everyone can thank me and McGarity for putting pressure on this staff to perform. Leaking Peterson rumors was brilliant however not my idea. Everone needs to understand how close CMR was to being let go on 9-12-2012. I’m glad McGarity is a cool, calm character.

If Grantham leaves, Richt will hire a new coordinator who will no doubt switch back to a 4-3. Then UGA will be back to 2010 all over again, and will regret extending Richt’s contract. The easy way out (not one usually taken by the stubborn, short-sighted administration at Butts-Mehre) would be to replace him with an equally talented coordinator who will KEEP the 3-4 defense. Problem is, I don’t see that coming as UGA is still not as committed to winning as Bama, LSU, Florida, Tennessee, Arkansas and Auburn. Despite the pending SEC East title, the same issues remain, that being a staff that doesn’t always work as hard as the competition to recruit (2011 the rare exception) and an administration that is extremely arrogant..

Personally, I think he should be UGA’s ‘head coach in waiting.’ Give him a 4-5 year deal, give him a cool $1MM per year and lock him down. Richt won’t be around forever, and many people think his days are numbered anyway. Not to be fired, but Richt could pull the trigger on a life in mission work at any season-end. These two guys could get it done. Championships are won by great defense.

If UGA beats LSU; LSU or AL will play NOT play for the NC

Every sports talk media know it all have been screaming it louder than ever; every single day that if you dont win your conference you shouldnt be allowed to play for the NC

I think if thats the way its going to be then if OK ST loses or OK state wins then OK should not be allowed because the Big 12 got rid of their championship game which is not fair to the other conferences

With all due respect there ole friend. What “you” think or what the talking heads think or what anyone else thinks is of no consequence. The BCS Cartel will do as it pleases. The general consensus is that if a team doesn’t win their conference then they “shouldn’t” play but, the problem there is that there is no provisions for that in the BCS system. The highest rated tea,s play, end of story. If UGA beats LSU, that will pretty much leave Bama at least in the #2 position.

I don’t believe Richt will be around that many more years. I guess if he gets a contract extention my belief is out the window. I think he may serve out his contract and then retire for mission work. I don’t know how many pick up that Coach Richt’s wife did not make the Florida game because she was studying to take her nursing test on the following Monday. I see this as part of setting the stage to enter the mission field. Most folks will say I’m off my rocker but I think Mike Bobo will be the next Head Coach at UGA. To Flgator; Urban will show Penn State they can’t get a coach in 2011 for the 1m they just started paying Joe-Pa who gave about half it back to the school. Welcome to the real world of paying major collage coaches Penn State.

After the season is finished is when the talk of contracts should be done. IF and it’s a big IF the Dawgs win the SEC Championship then extend Richt’s contract 2 years with a $500,000 bonus if he wins the NC during that time frame. Grantham, like his tactics or not, has brought back the Junkyard Dawg mentality to the defense. He has taken a laughable defense and got it to 4th in the nation behind LSU, Bama and of all people: Michigan State. 4th! I say extend him 2 years at 1 million per year and add a $250,000 bonus if his defense finishes in the Top 5 defenses in the Nation and tack on another $250,000 if the Dawgs win the NC during that time frame. If Grantham is paid he will stay, otherwise he will bolt back tto the NFL and we’ll be in rebuilding mode yet again.

Grantham has done an exceptional job in bringing his defense along!!!! If they play like they played against Florida and Auburn-LSU will have a “game on it’s hands”. I don’t think we will win however they will know they have played some “mean Junkyard Dogs”!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

As a complete observer (no affiliation with any ACC or SEC school) of UGA football, one can only laugh. Just 6 weeks ago, there was no doubt Richt was fired at seasons end. Now everyone is “extention for sure”. Either UGA has the dumbest fans, the fans with the shortest memory, or the most fair weather fans in all of sports (I think all is most likely).

Here is the deal. UGA can not get a better coach than they have now. NO CHANCE. Why would anyone come into this situation with the fans. UGA fans must realize, it has been a very long time since your last champtionship. Frankly, you are not considered an elite program any longer, but a upper middle-of-the-pack SEC team. So reallign your expectations and demands. I am just saying….

I think all this is funny. Most of you people wanted to get rid of coach Richt. This would include all coaches on his staff. I have always supported Mark and i still think he is one of the top five coaches in college football. However i would not blame him or Todd Granthan if they told Georgia and all its jump on or jump off fans to stick it where the sun want shine. But, because of the man coach Richt is and the committment he made when he came to Georgia, and many of you don’t remember him saying he wanted to be here for the rest of his career, he will stay and one day be one of the greatest coaches Georgia ever had. This will happen no matter who the defensive coach has been. Do any of you remember Vince Dooley and coach Russell. Just saying..

He didnt want to have to play the extra game and now thats working in Oklahoma’s favor if they beat OK ST they will leapfrog and play for the NC. Just watch.

Yet every radio person is preaching about winning their conference. Well its not right that the Big 10, SEC, and Pac 12 play an extra championship game and risk losing but the Big 12 doesnt because typical chicken wimps whine box Texas dont want to man up and play a championship game.

Who wouldn’t love our defense and Grantham deserves a ton of credit. We should try to lock him up for a while. The state of college football has changed where this is expected. However, I don’t see CGM as a legitimate head coach for a Division-1 program at this point. He still gets too excited and he is not a huge fan of interacting with the fans. That is fine with me – as long as we win, who cares? – but it is not a set of good characteristics for a head coach. They need to be stable and good with people. With that said, he is very well paid, so I think we have been fair to him and will continue to be.

I have seen many negative comments about how weak the schedule was/is this year. Last year’s schedule was arguably a little stronger but look at how much better the defense (and the whole team) has performed this year. When you lose to the teams you’re supposed to beat (last year) it’s fair to criticize the coach. When you beat the teams you’re supposed to beat (this year) the coach should get full credit for that also. I’ve been a Bulldog for 55 years and I remember the good ones (Coach Dooley and Coach Richt), the terrible one (Johnny Griffith) and the two mediocre ones (Very sorry to put a DGD in this category). Give CMR He?? when he deserves it and give him CREDIT when he earns it. He has earned it in spades in the past 8 games.

Everyone realizes that only 1 team a year wins an NC and Richt is the only coach since 1982 to have a team in the top 5 at the end of the season (and he has done it 3 times).

Does everyone realize that pre-Richt, we were not even smelling a national championship? Other teams like TEN, MICH, FSU, and on and on also have no NCs since Richt has been at UGA and that all of those programs had been to the mountaintop a helluva a lot more recently than GA had? I can only assume people saying Richt should be fired because of no NC in ten years (which would include all but 8 coaches in the country) are either off their meds or teenagers.

And you are a prime example of your own statement. Michael Dyer has chewed up most defenses all year yet UGA keeps him and McCalebb combined under 80. In fact, no one since Lattimore in week 2 (and talk about beaten up, UGA’s defense was missing it’s best player that week) has rushed for more than 100 yards. No QB has exceeded the 251 that Tyler Bray put up.

Actually, I think you are giving him way too much credit for that game. Pretty much same stuff they always run. But sure, I am certain he will be glad to know what a big fan you are of running Thomas behind the right guard now. We will just ignore that you called him a moron for doing it even one time in any previous game.

TG’s performance has made him a marketable commodity as a HC. It’s only a matter of time before he does get picked up somewhere as a HC in college ball or a DC in the pros. I’d say he’s earned a nice pay hike and extended contract which hopefully will keep him around Athens for a while. He’ll attract good talent to GA and his defenses will get better and more competitive in the SEC.

If the D can stay healthy and win out remaining games our chances against what looks like LSU in the Dome get better with age. We ‘re not there yet but the dawgs are getting closer to the AL’s and LSU brand of defense. It’ll be really interesting to see how they compete w/an LSU running game.

UGA had a great game against Auburn. They had terrible games, no discipline, no clock management, continually surprised on special teams, among others in many, many other games. I hate to see the tizzy of one or two games make people forget the last 3-4 years. Typical manic/depressive behavior of many fans. The talent has been there all along, the coaching has not.

You almost got it but you forgot a few points/rants I made during the year

Wefinally ran more in the I-Formation 90% of the time Saturday. You heard me rant about that especially after the Boise game
We also threw more crossing pattern plays and deep slants instead of the garbage sideline pass
We also threw to Figgens which ended in a TD

Murray’s footwork was better and as I pointed out he wasnt keying in on one reciever the whole time when he dropped back to pass

Grantham is doing a fabulous job on defense and the whole team is feeding off that positive energy. Next year we will look like bama and lsu even though look at our starting lineup and even though some are young most of them will be in the NFL just like bama and lsu. Everyone knew year one would be tough and i expected this yr a little improvement and maybe year three would look like this yr so in my opinion he is ahead of schedule. The size of our defense is very impressive. Our safeties this yr are bigger than our linebackers we had 2008-2010. The linebackers are some of the best in the country and they are so young so next yr will be fun. i think Todd will make a great head coach but he is not ready yet so i think he stays here two or three more years if we reward him for all of his hard work.
I think Bobo is coming around too. I have been really hard on Bobo but i notice in the Tennessee game that he called a great game and then he got a little conservative bc we could have blown them out and i think Mark got in his ear about that. If you look at out offensive production the past three yrs we are averaging over 30 pts a game but the defense was awful so that made Bobo look bad plus he was predictable and got conservative when we got a 3 score lead and that let alot of teams come back on us but this defense will not allow that. I am not just saying Bobo is looking better bc of the Auburn game this yr he has been a lot less predictable and the past three games have been called about as good as you can call them. The Florida offensive game plan was great the players just did not start executing until after half time. Bobo cant catch and throw and pick up the blitzes. Mark threw Bobo into the fire at OC and i think it is starting to click for him and i think being around Todd and watching him prepare for games might have taught Bobo what it takes.
We played complete games against Auburn and NMS (which in the past we would have been flat after a big win) and when we do that we can hang with anyone. We have a championship defense that will be better next yr and our offense is one of the best in the SEC and next yr we will be very dangerous bc if Mark stays we land another great recruiting class the recruits are waiting to see what happens. I love the type of athletes that Todd is going after on defense. Ogletree, J Jones, Geathers, Jenkins, Boykin, Rambo, Williams, Robinson, Gillard, Tyson, Herrera and others will all be drafted. We dont lose much on defense this year either Boykin will be missed but we got some great corners waiting and Rambo might go pro early but again we have studs waiting to play safety bc corey more he is a linebacker playing safety. The Future looks pretty good got to keep Todd

What should be more important is that McGarity and Richt are on the same page, a situation that did not exisy while Damon Evans was AD. CMR had repeatedly requested additional funding for more S&C coaches but DE would not budge, creating tension between the two. Once Mcgarity came on board, that was the first significant improvement he made.

Hopefully, that serves as an example of things to come. CMR recently made the statement that he trusted Grantham so much he didn’t even bother to “walk down there” to him during games, etc. If the head coach has that kind of trust in his defensive coordinator (much like Dooley and Erk) and the head coach and the AD see eye on important matters, there shouldn’t be any trouble getting an extension done.

AD, I mentioned (wrote) about a year ago something to the effect that,” I love your river.” You didn’t respond . . .

I’m just a catch-and-release bass fisherman, mostly fish in local tournament trails, but the Altamaha is so low right now, we just have one at “Seaboard” occasionally now, when the tide is right.

Upriver, when the level is about 4 or 5 ft higher, it has some of the best bass fishing in the world, numbers-wise, according to pros who have fished it.

The flath heads are worrisome to me – they prey on small bass. The DNR is actively trying to get some control of this, but those 3-day catfish tournaments still bring incredible amounts of fish to the weigh-ins, so I think they are here to stay.

Van Gorder got a little over confident in himself and took a head coaching job (Georgia Southern was a disaster). However, heavy lies the crown! The fact is some people are just meant to be #2’s and some people are #1’s. BVG and Grantham are very good #2’s. Hopefully Grantham knows his role and that is a DC at UGA. Richt and Grantham have the ying & yang thing going and I hope that Mcagarity realizes this before the season is over… The bottom line is if we want to be top notch we have to pay top notch.

Contract extension? Why now? Let’s finish the season. A win against Kentucky, a loss to Georgia Tech, and a drubbing in the SEC Championship should have everyone back to reality. UGA is an average team this year who played a very below average schedule. They don’t have a single victory against a currently ranked team. Still 0-2 in that stat

Richt wasn’t fired after starting 0-2 so let’s not even think about an extension.

Grantham is one of the best D-Coords in the country. He has proven this with the incredible improvement of the Dawg’s D in the past two years. He is good for recruiting as well. We might start to get 5 star recruits on Defense here pretty soon! With all of the young guys that Georgia has now and the ones that are coming in, I wouldn’t change anything on the coaching staff for at least the next 5 years. The only exception is Bobo, because I am still not impressed with Bobo’s play calling yet. Against Auburn, he really stepped up though.

I’m not sure what your point is but here is my point…

Georgia Tech’s offense statistically will be the second best offense we’ve played all year. Boise State being the best, which was a loss. South Carolina a distant second best, another loss. Vandy the next best, they rushed for 200 yards.

Let’s wait until the season is done before talking contract extension. Georgia has won 8 in a row against some mediocre teams. That is great and worthy of celebrating and being very happy about. However, we still have Georgia Tech, the SEC Championship, and probably a decent bowl opponent left. Let’s judge the season after all the games are in.

YEAH sign the man to an extension….. then when uga plays real compition next year and finishes with 6 losses you can call for his head and uga can buy him OUT! you havent played anyone this year except for your losses. And those were proven to not be great teams that you lost to…. and yes if you played them again now…. you would loose again…. but the arrogance at uga shows again…… they wont sign an extension because they will loose badly to LSU and then in their bowl game… probably badly also….

When you get a new job and raise sales or open a lot of new accounts or cut expenses or raise margins, you are usually rewarded…or you go somewhere that you can be. I say Grantham has done his job…. To #4 D in the country. Grantham didn’t make the schedule….he just had them ready to play every week. You reward the guy…or he moves on. Simple. He’s as hot as he’s ever been. Why hang for the same money for a year to year deal. Supply and demand. We snooze we lose.

McGarity would be a fool to give Richt more than a two year contract extension. McGarity needs to remember what happened to Fullmer and Tennessee. Tennessee is still paying the price for that stupidity. Two years is OK but nothing more. Richt has lost to the only good team he’s played, Boise State, and beat a sorry FL team with a gimpy QB by only 4 points. Auburn has lost big to both ARK and LSU. Two of the eight straight wins were against glorified high school programs. The rest of the wins have been against teams that are not very good…see Ole Miss, MS State & Tenn. McGarity needs to see what happens with LSU and the bowl game before he makes a final decision. If he extends Richt two more years, Richt will have time to prove that he has learned his lesson and is taking his job seriously again and proving he is worth $3 million a year. Next year Saban will be on the schedule and McGarity can see what Richt can do in Tuscaloosa. A win there and things might look different. But for now, the body of work with this year’s soft schedule does not justify a long term extension at season’s end.

I’ll take a shot Lowcountry. Freshmen WR don;t have the timing for that back shoulder pass thier first few games. Freshmen RB don’t have the experience to follow a pulling center up the field for 8 yrd, in thier first few games. The thing I have felt all year about (all sophomore QB in general) is that it still take while to match up thier freshman ability with the expanded role they are expected to cover. i think we arent dealing with those things quite as much right now.

Granthams defensive coaching has certainly saved Georgia’s season and possibly Richt’s job. The Book says “give credit where credit is due.” Give the man an increase in pay and a job extension.
If he can better himself by leaving or if he would be better satisfied to coach somewhere else for goodness sake don’t let it be said that Georgia didn’t do its part in trying to keep him.

Meanwhile, over at UGA their D, after nearly two complete years has arrived in the Top 5 of all important D categories due to Coach T. Granthom AND AS A DIRECT RESULT >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>UGA will be on world wide stage competing for the SEC title in THE DOME. THERE IS THE BEEF.

Al Groh’s mom even refuses to call him. Sad. GT in 1955 or was it 56, WAS IN a major bowl ( Sugar?) but has only been in two since then, 67 and 09 Urange Bowl stompings.

If CMR deserves a raise for this year, then he needs to refund his pay for year 2007 – 2011. It would be totally poor business judgment to raise this coach who sat on his arse while the program disintegrated around him. Towers must be on CMR’s payroll. Leave the contract alone. He has two years to go and if significant progress continues to be made (like playing in the BCS title game), then I’m fine with a raise. Extending the contract with a raise is ludicrous because for one, we have four games to go and we might be embarrassed in the last two. Then what? After all, the only ranked team we beat was Auburn. At the time we played the SEC teams, they all were below water.

This is way too premature and it certainly takes the shine off its offer, Chip Towers. He should be embarrassed by asserting such a dim-witted proposition.

People..! Wake up do you guys watch UGA football? Yes Uga is playing well. Yes the staff should stay together. Here’s the real question? Next year games 1-4 will tell if CMR and staff is serious about their jobs. Right now they are playing for their jobs. This is a what have you done for me lately world. CMR has to motivate and inspire the team every game. I said every game! Not just Florida or Auburn. When CMR has a team down he always calls off the dogs. This year against Auburn he keep pouring it on. That’s the kinda coach we need at UGA. This is a BCS polls league. You can still win with class and be a hard nose coach.

Once again, Murray’s height has nothing to do with much of anything. It is not ideal, but his inconsistent play has been because of comfort level.
Has mentioned multiple times by multiple posters, the O line has been the problem not Bobo. A great O line = great production when even having modest talent at the skill positions.
As for contract extensions, let CMR earn it with a NC. He has been here long enough, not more excuses. Grantham deserves everything is is getting then some. Soft schedule or not, improvement is obvious.

IF we play that well the rest of the way then do what we can to keep Grantham with Richt. The combo has been working so far.

Richt and Bobo are looking ok right now because of Grantham and the easiest UGA schedule in modern history. Richt and Bobo remain incompetent although they have proven themselves to be capable recruiters.

So does anyone want to comment on whether Richt deserves a raise, and Grantham already makes almost a million. I say give Grantham a two year extension to match what Richt already has with a token raise and evaluate the whole staff at the end of next year. Richt has earned another year but that’s it IMO.

Common sense says extend Grantham’s contract to the same length as Richt’s and increase his pay for the added on years to $1,000,000 per year. So, if they extend Richt’s contract 3 years they should do the same for Grantham. As for Grantham’s behavior, it was shown on TV replay twice yesterday that Franklin actually forcefully pushed Grantham. Maybe said something to Franklin but still you should never put your hands on another coach with anger.

Grantham stays to work with Richt. That’s why he came in the first place. He knows where he stands, he doesn’t need to be shown. And he would leave if the situation was right. It’s just the way it is. And nobody should blame him. We aren’t going to tie him up with some contract, but Nobody is going to insulting him over money either.

I like the idea of the bonus for Grantham, even going so far as having a base salary for Richt with bonus incentives. Richt gave Granthan a good opportunity, and a better paycheck. Grantham owe’s Richt a little “reverse loyalty”, that’s my opinion. If Grantham wants to leave he should go, your performance is directly proportional to your investment, financially and emotionally.

You may be right but an insurance policy is money in the bank, just have to disagree there. An extension next year would be just fine, that’s still before his contract expires. If I’m McGarity I have more to worry about than Richt’s feelings.

Think about it, Richt’s feelings, contract extension, security, the warm fuzzies. There’s nothing meaner than a Dawg backed into a corner, unless it doesn’t have a backbone. The true measure of a mans heart is measured when he faces adversity. So far he’s responded well. Why not let him “prove” his metal, he’s still got two years left on his contract. He can sell the recruits on his record and guarantee he will be back. This HS about losing recruits is just that.

In the SEC, having a great DC puts you in position to compete for championships on a fairly regular basis. We won 6 in Erk’s 19 years in Athens. We were in the hunt every years except BVG’s first year, and we are in the hunt this year with Grantham. I think the main difference between Donnan and Richt is that Donnan could never find a good DC. Lock Grantham up and let’s compete at a high level.

In baseball, good pitching usually beats good hitting, in football, “great” defense usually beats “good” offense. We have a “good to great” defense this year.

My “use” was never an issue. (Except for the guy in here looking for any chidish insults). I never said I did or didn’t.

Nothing about this contract issue is about warm and fuzzy. not ever sure its really a recruiting issue all that much. It’s business, there is a proper way to handle it. McGarity knows what it is.

And my point is that there is nothing left for Richt to “prove” to Mcgarity. You are assuming McGarity is using simplistic terms of win totals etc. He has already stated that he is not. I believe “direction” is what he is looking at, and surely he is convinced one way or the other. I am also sure that he has made whatever point he needed to make behind closed doors, not in a public spectacle. Personally, I think Richt responded more to the situation, not the pressure. I don’t see Mcgarity believing that holding off will motivate. Either he is your guy or he is not. If so, back him 100% and that means treating his contract the same way you would if it were any other coach in a SECCG.

Could really care less whether you did or didn’t, or whether or not you inhaled.

Have you ever studied psychology, do you know the theory of motivation? Richt needs this extension for his psyche as a vote of confidence. Navigating a troubled road builds character. Firing Richt would be a risky move, even for me, I’ve never been a Richt fan. I can live with him so long as he’s doing his job, we just have different philosophies on how to arrive at point A. Doesn’t mean he’s wrong. Maybe McGarity and Richt are similar, maybe not.

If McGarity’s comfortable with him he will get the extension. If I’m AD, he doesn’t get it until next year. I see McGarity in a vise right now. A few years back I thought maybe Richt had gotten it, he proved me wrong. Fool me once, shame on me, fool me twice, I’m a dumba$$. Yeah, I adlibbed.

Look at what Jenkins said on the recruiting trail Mobile. That is how important it is in extending Richt. Having lived in SC during the Bowden era of Clemson you cannot afford not to extend Richt. Tommy was killed by rivals by Clemsons inability to make a choice on him. Not saying its right or wrong but McGarity has to look 5 years down the road and see if he feels comfortable with Richt as his coach. If so then extend him along with Grantham 3 years. Make Grantham the highest paid DC in College football.

Cushy job Mark Richt has. He averages the # 7 recruiting ranking every single year for 11 years and will next year for 12 years in a row, too. Our players are suspended, for which he was given GREAT CREDIT according to you for bringing here, but NONE of the blame for the fact that for 11 years and counting, he has had NO DISCIPLINE on or off the field. We for 11 years have NOT beat the teams who finish in the AP Poll Top 10 at 3-10. We for 11 years have NOT beat the teams who would not finish in the AP Poll Top 25 had they not beat Mark Richt, 17 of them to-date and counting.

You are SOFT. You let Mark Richt tell you he is the # 4 best football coach in all of America, when the facts are he is in a state which finds but 2 other states who have more top recruits who go on to the NFL, and no competition in-state for them. We don’t recruit the obvious holes we have, such as not recruiting 1 fullback of the 200 fullbacks every year for the last 6 consecutive recruiting classes. You replied to me all off-season that we have great fullbacks. Instead, what we have is not 1 has had so much as a great play all season against all these 25-32 UNRANKED in the AP Poll Top 25 today CUPCAKES.

Wake me up when we beat a team who finishes in the AP Poll Top 10 as LSU has TWO (2) of already as they did in 2007 when again Mark Richt beat no team who finished in the AP Poll Top 10.

We have our best years when we play WEAK OPPONENTS and even then WE LOSE to teams we SHOULD NOT LOSE TO, such as South Carolina this year. Insert your EXCUSES for this you Richt Apologists.

Every single RICHT-O-PHILE has come onto this blog and stated that MARK RICHT SHOULD BE FIRED.

Some, today, log on and say, oh give him a CONTRACT EXTENSION.

For what ?

Easy job being head coach at UGA.

Easy. And, it is ALL your fault, not mine. I have held him to higher standard, and he does NOT live up to it. Not with his DREAM TEAM headliner, Isaiah Crowell ON or OFF the field. In front of me Saturday afternoon, he immediately jumped up and was JAWING at Auburn a team who is NOT RANKED in either the AP Poll nor the Coaches Poll, and who still has a LOSS to Alabama coming. The week before, the coach said IC was taking his SECOND SUSPENSION of the season well. He played against the # 86 Total Defense and frankly did not do as well as Carlton Thomas against said NO DEFENSE # 86. Auburn has the # 97 TOTAL OFFENSE with absolutely NO PASSING GAME, and then I come in this blog today and read our SECONDARY is just ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS based upon this showing vs the # 97 Total Offense.

GIVE MARK RICHT an EXTENSION. That is ALL you have wanted from the beginning. You care not about our football program.

The players who have graduated or moved on stay in contact with him. It’s easy to be impatient but I think it will pay off for UGA, fans and football. I’ve had season tickets since 1968 and as we all know one year of bad numbers under CMR doesn’t compare to some of the past years. UK, GT and then LSU, GO DAWGS!

There is no long term stability in college football anymore.
You do win championships with defense.
Recruits don’t count on the head coach being there the whole time; their mothers do. Daddies know better.
You folks should just cool it. Take a chill pill. Don’t put out then tell the neighborhood you thought y’all was going steady.
No contract extension for CMR. He hosed us last year. He hosed us again at the beginning of this year.’Winning football’ is not even in his top five of favorite things. He is not intimidated by failure. Ya wins some; ya loses some…then you go to gimmicks, gosh awfully ugly uniforms, and tacky stunts that are just plain mortifying. Things are not going to get easier in SEC Football. CMR has not even the glimmer of a spark in his belly for it anymore.
Heck, even Ugga’s blood is a few corpuscles shy of a full load.
The only thing that is constant is change. Adapt or die.
We should not be running a high-paying government job program for CMR.
I think he’s better suited for Davidson or Furman. Don’t worry. Be happy.
He can coach the kids there.
Offer CTG a raise. Keep in mind that he is only doing what was asked of him.
Let Bobo coach the QBs only. Get a ‘for real’ OC in here immediately.

Big Dawg

IMHO the turn around in the program starts with McGarity lighting a fuse under Coach Richt. Coach Richt made good hires with Coach Grantham and Friend. Coach Grantham has that fire and expertise for teaching that you need to be successful. It is also becoming apparent that Coach Friend also has fire, intensity and expertise in getting a depleted offensive line to perform at high and consistent level.

For these reasons and probably others we are not aware of, Coaches Richt, Grantham and Friend should receive contract extensions with Coach Grantham and Friend receiving nice raises.

Go Dawgs

I have a better idea: give Richt his extension but cut his salary to $100,000 per year with a $290000 bonus for each game he wins. Seems like a good proposition for me. I think Richt would say “hell, no”, because he would be afraid of how many losses he would have.

Grantham has done a great job with Georgia’s defence. I personally would like to see him offered a long term contract. This would go a long ways with stabilizing the defencive side of the ball. I see nothing but upside with him staying at Ga. I hope someone makes a good decision and do the right thing.

I think before anyone talks about extending Richt’s contract they should wait until he has to play a real schedule. As Richt himself commented, if Florida had played UGA’s schedule and UGA had played Florida’s the won lost record could very easily be reversed!!!!!!!! UGA’s schedule turned out to be even easier than everyone thought before the season began. Richt has too many other priorities than winning championships!!!

There is no doubt that the reason Mark Richt gets an extenstion on his contract is because the defense has made it possible for UGA football to have the record they have so I say sign Todd Grantham to a long term contract.Without Grantham, Mark Richt’s not here next year because the Dawgs would have lost some other games that the defense kept them in.Lock him in long term and the future looks bright…Go Dawgs

Simple, extend and raise his pay. In private business you don’t mess with a winning team. If you look back on this year, there are many games that the defense WON as the offense just wasn’t there yet. I think a million is about right and 4 years extension with raises based on incentives. When you look back even to the Dooley years, defense was VERY important. DON’T CHEAP OUT!!!

November 15th, 2011

Todd is providing some much needed discipline for your program so watch your step. For an agent to be pushing so hard for a extended deal so early is a sign that TG might wish to be around the UGA program but he would like a litttle bump as well. The update to Richt’s contract is the big question that must be dealt with at y/e. UGA needs to go find a RB coach this year and one that is good. If you can make enough good hires around the HC then they can provide the discipline that Mark doesn’t. You watch #1 carry the football today and he’s still playing at a HS level and that is on the RB coach at this point.

An extension gets us nothing. If he bolts it will be for a HC job so an extension and raise will mean nothing. That said…pay him for the product he has put on the field – he deserves a raise.

November 15th, 2011
9:38 am

UGA has a weak schedule is a tired, worn out term. Back in the day around 81 or 82 or 83, UGA STOMPED Johnny Majors and his UT Volunteers like 46-6 and then, it was said, UGA’s schedule is weak. Fine.

My point is this: friends, you play the schedule and you play is well. Another team’s misfortune is NOT your concern. You tee it up and play ball.

Competition is keen in the SEC because our schools recruit high quality young men that can bring it. Depth is usually the deciding factor a lack thereof.

Goooooooooooooooooooo Dogs.

PS LSU and Alabama and Arkansas have not played UGA this year. No more “oh, um, well ah, UGA has not played” U of so and so. After this week when Akry loses to LSU they will be ranked below UGA.

TampaDawg

November 15th, 2011

@Back in the Day .. agreed, the fact is the schedules are made so far out, usually 3-4 years in advance, that most of this argument never makes sense. So UGA not having LSU on the schedule this year, is most like a result of scheduling from 2008. I would think the way they beat up LSU in 2008, they would have kept them on there if it were a “conspiracy”. I have been saying all along how funny it is when trolls talk about the team of the week beating UGA on Thursday or Friday but come Monday after a Dawgs win, it’s “well, UGA still hasn’t played anyone”.

And by the way, Houston is in the top 10 in the BCS standings .. haven’t heard anyone talk about that juggernaut of a schedule.

I have never been a fan of the McClendon hire. To be fair though, he wasn’t hired in a search for a RB coach. He landed there because he was a valuable recruiter and Richt made a spot for him in the whole “Running Game Co-ordinator” staff concept. Now that we have gone away from that, and McClendon probably wouldnt be hired if we were just looking for a pure position coach at RB. ALL that being said, who is to say he isn’t going to work out in the end. I see no reason to fire him just yet, especially IF he can help bring in a couple more big time recruits, which is IMO is much more important than who runs them through the drills.

Also there is a very noticable difference watching Crowell carry the ball over the cource of the year, so he seems to be at least doing a fair job. The play of the O-line has a lot to do with how good the RB coach looks as well.

“…Grantham is the among the top three highest-paid coordinators in college football at $750,000 a year, according to a survey by USA Today, and the only UGA assistant coach with a multi-year deal….Should the Bulldogs move to lock up Grantham as soon as they can for as long as they can? Or should Georgia remain guarded in their approach to long-term contracts? …”

Okay, make him among the top two highest-paid. Remain guarded in approach, but give him an extension to keep it in the present three year range. If he leaves he leaves; can’t be helped. But, his agent says he wants to stay. I say remain guarded because you don’t want to sow dissension in the assistant coaching ranks with anything far outside the “norm”.

And, of course extend coach Richt’s contract. Goes without saying.

“It is only logical” UGA would extend the contract? Are you kidding me? University Athletic Associations are the worst-run enterprises in America. Let the guy finish his contract (if you won’t fire his sorry a**), THEN give him a new contract no longer than 3 years. Because by the time you finally do decide to fire his a**, you will be stuck with a huge bill. Just like Goof and Donnan. Sheesh.

Most everyone here agrees, and so do I: EXTEND contracts to both Richt and Grantham. The ‘Dogs are young and still learning, but this learning is coming much quicker than most of us thought it would. It’s nice to see GATA defense, one that plays 60 minutes. I’m not even looking to December just yet. One game at a time. So,against Kentucky, let’s play with the same intensity (Offense and Defense) this Saturday as we did last Saturday, and I believe we’ll see pretty much the same result. We haven’t seen this program soar like it has in many years. It’s all about RESPECT.

For those following at home

Thomas Brown = buLLdawg = Mathew Ciafaro = Bobo is not the problem

Let the coaches play out the contracts they currently have then extend them? You do realize that is recruiting suicide dont you?

Point A in how little you know.

Point B-

Manage your money well? Stuck with a huge bill like Goff/Donnon? You will not donate?

Well in my humble opinion I beleive this university is making it by alright financially without you. I guess that study in ‘09 showing we where the 2nd most profitable football team and 13th most profitable in all sports alluded you.

Again you just keep working on that little agenda ya got going. Just know reality police will be here to let you know its time to take your med’s and make sure you do not miss Judge Wapner.

After yesterday’s fiasco that you think Mark Richt is likely to get a contract extension based upon him beating 10 teams this regular season, not 1 of whom is ranked in the AP Poll Top 25 today, and who are 25-32 on the season with more losses for the lot of them – and then getting his hat handed to him by Les Miles before he plays his obligatory bowl game against yet again this year again another lousy opponent; no one even wants to discuss how bad Kentucky is for this week’s “win” for us at # 118 total offense and # 66 total defense. But, it sure was fabulous beating the # 97 total offense and # 86 total defense of Auburn – boy, they are great, aren’t they ?

There is no consideration around here given to whom the 10 teams are Mark Richt beat; yet, you each are the 1st to criticize every other team for their “wins” over nobodies. Did anyone get beat up today after they asked that we please advise where they said that every wide receiver who came here with all this hype, every running back who came here with all this hype, every OL who came here with all this hype and our QB we defend in here telling everyone how he is 6 feet short, can’t see over the line, and has beat 0 teams who ended the season in the top 25 even. Oh, but even though it is asked to be provided, please don’t provide that to the blog, while all I do is call everyone an idiot in every post – I am so focused you know on talking football, which is why I call everyone an idiot and have to threaten them with physically being beaten up by a 53 year old hiding behind his keyboard.

Why does everyone pin winning an NC as the MUST DO for a coach to be successful? Play for SEC Championships, and the rest will take care of itself. Everyone is harping on the weak schedule. Get over it….its what we were given and we did it. Last season was dismal, and last year’s squad would have LOST to Florida and Vandy THIS year. The defense is playing extremely well and as the season has progressed, young guys are making statements and proving that we are loaded with scoring threats all over the field. Richt deserves to keep developing these players. They committed to UGA to play for Richt and the recruits that are considering us are underlining the desire to play for Mark Richt and not a new coach. I think people have unreal expectations after LSU, Florida, and Auburn(*) seemed to win turn-key championships. Thats still a rarity! Additionally, CUT IT OUT with the envy of the other programs. I don’t care who they are, UGA has been down lately but we have a MASSIVE program that is nothing to be ashamed of. Its time for Dawg fans to reclaim their pride…which really should never wane with the amount of wins or losses we amass. I don’t care if BAMA wins an NC, I am a Bulldog….to he!! with Bama or anyone else.

Just a few weeks ago, Richt was on the hot seat and soon to be out the door. Eight wins later (against 8 very bad teams) and Dawg nation wants to lock him up for years to come. Dawg fans have a short memory! All the RB’s are smoking pot, but Ga beats FL = Richt is a coaching god! Two tough losses and a player gets a speeding ticket = Richt is an idiot! WHICH IS IT?

Ask the defensive players, after the season, their opinion on coach Grantham and go according to it and what coach Richt has to say! Surely the AD would take these individuals advice and do what is necessary to be fair to coach Grantham and Richt too for that matter! Keep the University President as far away from these negoations as possible and from the Athletic programs as a whole!!!

Terry,

Auburn is UNranked in the AP Poll Top 25 and got Zero Votes
Auburn is UNranked in the Coaches’ Poll Top 25 (# 32 in Votes)
# 97 Total Offense
# 86 Total Defense

If this is your idea of a SIGNATURE win, I am happy for you. We got just exactly who YOU WANT then. Make no mistake about, that is our “signature win.” I said all along we would be 11-3, specifically. Exactly. And, I said all Summer that 11-3 would mean we had beat NO ONE. Not 1 team ranked in the AP Poll Top 25 will we have beat.

For this, since this blog is either about how great a fan Lowcountry Bulldawg is compared to me, him in here with his BITTER BITING comments about Aaron Murray, Isaiah Crowell, Israel Troupe, Marlon Brown, Rantavious Wooten, and Tavarres King et al; or, this blog is about physical threats of violence; or this blog is about Mark Richt either does NOT or does deserve a contract extension.

We are NOT to hold Mark Richt responsible for the fact that NONE of the 11 wins he puts up this year will be against ANY teams who ends up in the only poll printed for this entire season – since NONE today are in the AP Poll Top 25 and Auburn ALSO not in the Coaches’ Poll Top 25.

Where was I overly critical of Murray?

Staying his play in Florida was off? I think that is common knowledge he did not play his best game.

The Height comment? I was defensing him, pointing out how his ditractors point to the height.

The Wide Receiver comment? Troupe, Brown,Wooten,King

It is a assessment that we have two true freshmen and a redshirt freshman who are outshing them all. Again not overly critical just saying what has happened to these guys development.

Crowell comment? Ugh a suspension against Vandy a suspension against NMSU. I think he deserves a little heat for this.

You simply cannot handle the truth my friend. I have not threatened violence against you, note that. The truth is this season has unfolded in a way that your agenda is not met and it makes your rants without merit anylonger.

So have fun in your little twilight zone world you exist in. Just know that some of us live in the real world where little Matty is rendered helpless it looks like.

And a coward

I have memories too of posts done by you where you praised Richt years ago.

Now you want him fired

I never said I wanted him fired you idiot

I said if he lost to Sc, the table was set.

I was right but you will never admit it.

Know why?

Because you are a liar and a fraud.

Richt turned things around and I have praised him for it while still being critical of some things.

You just spew garbage.

All this talk about ten, fla, auburn and the rest of the teams weve beat this year are terrible as well. We get it, they arent as good as theyve been in the past but you can only play the games on your schedule and those main three are on our schedule every year. In the SEC anyone can win, any week! If we were to play sc on saturday (with garcia and latt) no one can say that it would probably be a different game than the second week of the season. Coaches have done a great job with a bunch of young dawgs. Love the fire in CTG and feel were heading in the right direction with the right coaches! Both get 4 year extensions with incentives. Get er done before CTG goes to ole miss!

Well I guess I’ll throw my 2 cents in or at least try lol.

Let me say I love UGA football first, but this season as much as I hate to say it we benefited from having a very easy schedule.

Yes I do agree these things are made far in advance, but still it doesn’t matter a easy schedule is still easy.

UGA has beaten Auburn and FL those two schools plus South Carolina were the only teams worth a damn on our schedule plus Boise.
Out of the three We played SC good, but their not better than many of the West teams like Ark, LSU, and Bama.

Auburn has an identity crisis they remind me of the bulldogs after we lost Stafford and as such they just lost Cam Netwon so it’s the same thing basically. So it’s like one week okay we’ll beat your butts the next week their lost like lambs.

Florida as much as I hate them with a passion is not the same florida at all not even close.

Honestly if you count wins of Tennessee and Florida as Quality wins you’re in for a world of hurt these two teams this year are like the worse two teams fielded in over 20 years. I’m sorry they are great wins cause I don’t like either one, but still get real.

What’s worse with some of these games glancing over certain teams schedule we struggled to beat Florida and somewhat Tennessee where as the top 3 teams didn’t have a bit of problem that’s Ark, LSU, and Bama.

We will see in a few weeks what happens in ATL, but either one of two things will happen
1. We beat LSU by an upset because they looked way past us
2. We get beat down like no tomorrow and the expose every weakness we have.

I’m almost expecting the second to happen they’ve improved but to the point they match LSU even Bama nope not by a long shot.

pay grantham whatever his agent wants—he’s worth at least 1.5 million plus a boatload of perqs and incentives. If not, grantham will be looking around for more money somewhere else.

[...] Michael Harrison has been rebuffed by athletic director Greg McGarity, who says he won’t address coaches’ contracts until after the season. And sorry, but Mark Richt’s contract is a slightly higher [...]

To those saying that the contracts and extensions don’t matter to recruits.

Here’s a quote from Jordan Jenkins’ dad to the AJC:

“…The opportunity to compete for early playing time is important to Jenkins, as is coaching stability. The elite recruit and his family like Richt, but heard so much speculation about his coaching future that they briefly considered canceling the official visit. UGA’s eight-game winning streak, along with a heart-felt conversation with Richt over the weekend, helped calm the concerns.

“We had a long talk with Coach Richt, and it was good,” Jenkins said. “We’ve talked with him before, and we know he’s a good man. Another thing that was holding us up with UGA is that we wanted to see how the season went because we knew there was speculation that if things didn’t go right that Coach Richt might not be there at the end. We feel confident now, based on how their season has gone, that Coach Richt is going to be back. That’s a thought on the minds of a lot of recruits when you start talking about Georgia. Is Coach Richt going to be there so you can play for him? We feel like he will be.”

Jborodawg

November 16th, 2011

For those of you who don’t know about Jenkins, he’s a 5 star recruit who had Bama and Flawduh ahead of UGA….before this past weekend. He was at the Awbun game and he and his dad seemed to have been impressed…and possibly moved the Bulldogs up a notch on his list. Haters, notice how they say coach Richt is a “good man”? Some of you don’t think that character counts, just wins and loses. By some of your logic, like Thomas Brown, aka several monikers lately, every school in the country (save LSU, Bama) should fire their coaches.

You guys are kidding right? You actually think you have a shot at beating LSU? Dec 3rd is going to be a cold hard dose of reality for you bone heads. You’ve won 8 straight but have yet to beat or even play anyone of any significance. And BSU’s loss last week makes you guys look even worse than the rest of the nation already knows you are. I would love to see a real measure of how “good” Georgia actually is by taking on the likes of Bama and Arkansas. But I guess it will only be LSU who is gonna put the little doggies in their place, the pound. Keep on yapping!

Who has Oregon beat? Who has Oklahoma St beat? Who has Alabama beat? You can play that “you havent beaten anyone” card for most teams. Boise lost because they can only beat good teams with a month or more to prep. they cant do it during the season. You mean the same LSU that was up 14-7 against western kentucky in the first half?? And we have outrecruited LSU the past 4 years and have JUST as much talent. our problem was coaching which is now fixed

Mark Richt gets a extension have beating 6 straight teams with 500 or bleow, everyone knows Georgia is going to get beat by at least 20 against LSU, then they are going to get wiped out in a Bowl game against some team with a wining record.
They have yet to beat a team with a wining record but they are pumping there chest out like they have won nat, Florida coach has 1 more year to put up numbers like this year and he and Wiss are out, thats the difference between the programs, Mark R. would if been out years ago in Fl, Al,LSU, all three schools have won a title in the last 15 years.

We’ve played 2 tough teams this year and lost both games. In the other 8 games we’ve been favored in each of them and pulled out wins even though we could have lost to Vandy, Tennessee and Florida. I think we played great against Auburn but before we start talking about giving Richt an extension lets see how we compare to LSU. Aside from the Tech win 2 years ago we don’t have any big wins over the past 3 years. We consistently lose to the top tier teams and beat the average teams. We always seem to choke in the big games unlike Saban and Les Miles teams.
