Now this is some first-grade fish bait, Chip Towers.
Mike Gottfried says Georgia fans should be careful what they wish for with regard to offensive coordinator Mike Bobo. The long time college football analyst predicts Bobo likely will be leaving the Bulldogs sooner than they think — and it won’t be under the circumstances they might expect.
“They won’t have him long,” said Gottfried, a sportscaster and former head coach at Pittsburgh and three other college programs. “He will be a head coach real soon. Coach Bobo is a great human being and a great coach and he’s going to be a great head coach some day, without any doubt.”
Mike Gottfried? I guess Bob Davie wasn’t available for comment.
It’s fair to say there’s some disconnect between Bobo’s production and his public perception. It’s also fair to say that Bobo bears some responsibility for that. But his agent is prepared to do something about it.
… But, salary talk aside, Campbell doesn’t believe his client gets enough respect.
“That’s something my partner and I have observed; the perception isn’t there on him that should be,” Campbell said. “If you look at the production, clearly he’s been very productive, very good for the offense. He’s a young coach and we really believe in him. But there’s a disjoint in perception and I find that curious. I think that’s one of the challenges we have, to try to change that a little bit.”
Campbell’s got some spare time freed up for that now, seeing as he’s also Bobby Petrino’s agent.
