Mark Richt’s excellent response to weird retirement rumors
Every year this comes up, and every year the coach shoots it down.
When your ranked team stomps another ranked team in a bowl game, as a head coach you usually start fielding questions about high expectations for next season. When you’re Georgia’s Mark Richt, people ask you about if you’re retiring.
The Bulldogs beat Louisville 37-14 in the Belk Bowl Tuesday, led by 233 yards from true freshman running back Nick Chubb. Richt had some fun with the curious rumors, even bringing in his star running back into the conversation.
Mark Richt laughs at rumors he would retire after the game: “Hey, Nick (Chubb), did I retire after the game?”

Richt, 54, has posted a 136-48 record in 14 season with the Bulldogs, with two conference championships and six division titles. Georgia just missed out on another division title this season, but will likely be the SEC East favorite next preseason.
