I’d say that quote would make a terrific epitaph for Greg McGarity’s tenure as Georgia’s AD, except it’s starting to sound like he’s not going anywhere, at least not any time soon.
Morehead was asked after Thursday’s meeting if he is planning on extending the contract.
“We’re not talking about anything but the current situation, but yes I have great confidence in Greg,” Morehead said. “He’s doing a tremendous job but you know we’re good where we are. …We haven’t had any of those kind of conversations.”
McGarity standing besides Morehead as the two answered reporters’ questions added: “There’s no urgency.”
“We’re in a good position,” Morehead added.
Later when the subject came up again with reporters, Morehead said: “Presidents operate on year to year contracts. I don’t think it’s a big issue.”
… Asked if he wants to be athletic director beyond his current contract, McGarity said: “I think it’s just the unforeseeable future, yeah. Yeah, I think so. So we’ll just see what happens. Trust me, we haven’t even talked about that in any way because it’s not urgent. It’s not an important matter. I think for the foreseeable future, I feel in great shape.”
Hell, why shouldn’t he? Nice contact with little accountability — sweet gig, if you can keep it.
