I’m not sure if this falls in the “if you don’t have anything good to say about someone, don’t say anything at all” department or not, but it’s an interesting complaint.
… Georgia coach Mark Richt said last week that he gave Pugh an “unconditional release,” putting no restrictions on his transfer.
“I want them to go where it’s best for them,” Richt said. “I’ve just always done it that way.”
Kranish, however, said Pugh was “very disappointed” in Georgia.
“He said that some of the other Division I schools that he contacted called Georgia and never got a call back,” Kranish said.
Kranish said that Colorado did not get a return call from Richt or former Georgia defensive coordinator Willie Martinez, now the secondary coach at Oklahoma.
Richt has been known in the past to go the extra mile to help kids who left the program find a new home, so if Kranish’s allegations are accurate, I don’t know if that says something about Pugh, or if Evil Richt is back on the job. Of course, maybe he and Martinez were too busy to return phone calls.
