This has some massive potential for awkwardness.
Mark Richt and his now former Georgia players still may get together one more time next week.
“I might go to the senior awards banquet,” the former Bulldog and newly hired Miami head coach told WQAM radio in South Florida on Friday. “The seniors asked me if I would come back. If it doesn’t disrupt the business of getting ready here at Miami, I’ll be there. Other than that, I’ll be here working.”
Um… what about the business of getting ready in Athens?
Look, I get why the seniors would ask him to do that. But he’s no longer a part of the program. If it’s about keeping up with the players he once coached, that’s what the Paul Oliver Network is for, something I hope he doesn’t let lapse now that he’s at Miami.
I’d like to think it doesn’t come to someone telling him it would be best not to attend, but that quote makes it sound like he’s not considering a graceful way out.
