In the wake of the public messiness between the football staff and the athletic administration, I said this:
You’ve got a situation where there’s clearly friction between the AD and the football staff. Pruitt’s outburst should have been a warning to McGarity that there was real frustration over management of the program and that everyone needed to be on the same page, or at least keep differences in house. Instead, McGarity has chosen to take his position public, as evidenced by that interview with Mark Bradley.
What you’ve got now is a poisoned atmosphere. It’s easy to start rumors that people want to believe have credence and that’s what I saw last night.
Social media isn’t where you fix this. You fix this by nailing down contracts, crowing about them as proof that B-M backs Richt and doing what it takes to fill the open slots on the staff with home run hires. [Emphasis added.]
Sounds like they’re starting to get the message.
