ATHENS — Embattled Georgia coach Mark Richt said Tuesday he has told his players to ignore questions about his job security, calling the criticism “noise.” Georgia (5-3, 3-3 Southeastern Conference) has lost three of four games, including lopsided conference losses to Alabama and Florida. Last week’s 27-3 loss to the Gators ended the Bulldogs’ SEC championship hopes and increased the heat on Richt to its highest level since a poor start to the 2011 season.
