Georgia coach Mark Richt listens in as coaches talk to players in a timeout against Auburn during the second quarter of the game Nov. 14 in Athens.
ATLANTA — Mark Richt stepped down as Georgia’s coach on Sunday in what was called a “mutual” decision but looked like a firing. Georgia athletic director Greg McGarity said in a statement that he met with Richt on Sunday morning “to discuss the status of our football program.” McGarity said the two “mutually agreed that he would step down as head coach and would have the opportunity to accept other duties and responsibilities at UGA following the bowl game.”
