Here’s Corch Meyer’s reaction to the McGarity hire:
“Greg has been a tremendous asset to me and our football program in my time at Florida. I remember first meeting Greg when Jeremy flew out to talk to me about the Florida job. He was involved in every discussion with Jeremy and our family and I could tell right away that Greg played a pivotal role in the athletic department. I could also see that his relationship with Jeremy and others in the athletic department went beyond the professional level. He was very well liked and respected among his co-workers. Greg always found a way to get things done, but he did it in a very personable manner.”
Gracious, yet there’s something missing… hmm… oh, yeah, check Billy Donovan’s comment:
“I’m elated for Greg and his family that he is getting a chance to not only direct a first-class athletic department, but in essence, to go home. I’ve known Greg for 15 years, he was involved in my hiring at Florida, and has been someone I’ve always had great respect and admiration for. I echo the sentiments of everyone here in wishing he and his family the best in Athens and we will certainly all miss him. Georgia has made a fantastic hire.” [Emphasis added.]
Maybe Corch is worried about this.
… Richt joked that he might learn a few of the Gators’ secrets.
“I won’t hit him with that right off the get-go,” he said, laughing. “I’m sure that’s a subject that will come up.”
