ATHENS——–Former University of Georgia head football coach Mark Richt
has made the decision that he will not coach the Bulldogs in their upcoming
bowl game.  He informed the team Thursday afternoon.

UGA J. Reid Parker Director of Athletics Greg McGarity has named assistant
head coach Bryan McClendon, who also coaches wide receivers, as the interim
head coach. Offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer and defensive
coordinator Jeremy Pruitt, as well as all other assistant coaches, will
remain in their present roles with current responsibilities.

“I’ve asked Bryan to assume all administrative duties of the head coach,”
said McGarity.  “This will be the least disruptive option for our players
and staff as they begin preparations for our bowl game.”
