As you can imagine, I received more than a few emails last night when the news broke. One of those reminded me that Kirby Smart’s agent is none other than Jimmy Sexton (so is Will Muschamp’s, by the way). The person who sent that expressed the hope that Sexton wouldn’t let Smart take the job without fighting to make sure that McGarity got his way on how the responsibilities of the position are structured.
To which I could only respond, the idea of Jimmy Sexton as the savior of Georgia football is about as ironic as you can get.
In any event, I hope that Kirby is a huge success here, if only to sit back and enjoy what Sexton will put McGarity through when the inevitable day comes that Nick Saban retires in Tuscaloosa. (Sexton’s probably mapping his strategy out for that as you read this.) McGarity deserves nothing less. LOL.
