Marc Weiszer goes through Mark Richt’s new contract and makes a nice catch with this:
Here is some new language that wasn’t in the previous contract:
–“It is expected that the recruitment of junior college student-athletes will be kept to a minimum, as determined by Richt and the Athletic Director.”
As Weiszer notes, it’s not as if Richt invests a lot of scholarships in JUCO transfers, so this is more of a non-issue issue perhaps. Still, I bet Nick Saban doesn’t have time for that shit in his contract. I wonder how prevalent that provision is across the SEC. And who in Athens was bothered enough by this to insist on adding the provision to Richt’s new deal.
