This seems like a timely comment from Mike Bobo about seeking a head coaching job:
So when is the right time for a coordinator to make a move? And what’s the correct path?
“I really don’t know the answer, to be honest with you,” Georgia offensive coordinator Mike Bobo said. “I think you just know when you know it’s time to do it. I don’t think you try to force it — to where you want to be a head coach so bad that you’ll jump at anything.”
Bobo, who has coached quarterbacks at his alma mater for the past 14 seasons and directed UGA’s offense since 2007, has had opportunities to leave. His name was connected to head-coaching positions at Southern Miss and Georgia Southern, and Virginia Tech tried to hire him as its offensive coordinator in 2013.
Bobo said he and his family are so emotionally attached to UGA that it would take the perfect situation to pry him out of Athens.
“[UGA coach] Mark Richt says if you want another job or a better job, apply enthusiasm to the one you have,” Bobo said. “Ever since I heard him say that, it’s the approach I’ve taken.”
Those are not the words of a Jimmy Sexton client, that’s for sure.
