"We have conversations with a lot of different institutions," said McGarity, who said nothing is in writing about the series. "Notre Dame's one of them, but there are others involved, too. It's not like it's just limited to this. We've got several opportunities out there in the future."
CBSSports.com reported the schools were working to finalize a home-and-home series, perhaps in 2018-19.
McGarity wouldn't pin down any specific years.
"When situations are right, they're right," McGarity said. "It's all wide open."
Georgia and Notre Dame have played once before, a 17-10 Bulldogs win in the Sugar Bowl to end the 1980 national championship season.
"That would be an appealing game for everyone, just as a lot of other schools that we're talking to," McGarity said. "First of all, we've got to determine how many games we're playing in the SEC down the road (eight or nine). That's the first order of business."
Georgia's had some high-profile nonconference games scheduled in future years that ended up getting scrapped.
"Periodically, it's good to play these kind of nonconference games," McGarity said. "Whenever we schedule a game whether it's them or someone else, it's just periodic in nature. Does that mean every three or four years? I don't know. It's just what feels right and what's best for our program."
Turman's redshirt is behind him and he's now working this spring to earn his spot in what should be a crowded backfield this August with Gurley, Marshall, Douglas and touted incoming freshmen Sony Michel and Nick Chubb.
With Green now a defensive back, Turman is getting chances to open eyes now.
"This spring is just like a big steppingstone for me," Turman said Tuesday. "I can actually make my mark and get my opportunity."
Turman has rushed for 42 yards on 14 carries in two spring scrimmages and will get another chance to show what he can in Saturday's G-Day spring game.
He's already made a "positive statement," for himself this spring, coach Mark Richt said.
"A.J. has really improved a lot," Richt said. "He works as hard as anybody that we have on the team. …He's a really hard working guy and he's getting better because of it."
The 6-foot, 210-pound Turman dealt with a minor knee injury in preseason camp last year that he called "horrible timing." The Orlando product traveled to Tennessee on Oct. 5, but figured he would redshirt because he was behind in learning the plays.
Now, he's trying to show coaches what he can offer now.
"I really like a lot of contact," Turman said. "I'm a contact back. I try to get yards after contact. There's a lot of stuff I still have to focus on like getting my pad level down…and accelerating more at the line of scrimmage."
This year's G-Day should look similar to last year in its format, Richt said.
That means 12-minute quarters and drives that start at the 25.
Punts will result in a 35-yard change of field position and there will be no rushing on extra points and field goals.
The Red team, consisting of the no. 1 offense and the no. 2 defense, will be coached by offensive coordinator Mike Bobo. The Black Team, made up of the No. 1 defense and No. 2 offense, will be coached by defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt.
"Some guys may flip jerseys on one side and then they may flip jerseys in the second half or something like that," Richt said.
Richt expects the coaches to all be on the field since the staff is split.
This and that
Green, the sophomore star nickel back, practiced in a non-contact jersey Tuesday, but Richt said he's likely to play in the G-Day game. Tight end Jordan Davis (sprained knee) remains out.
Richt said Georgia has done more special teams work this spring than in the past. "We've even incorporated more punt team stuff into our scrimmage days, which normally we don't do that," Richt said. "We're doing more drills with the punt team versus the punt return and block team. We did that today to start the practice off, which was really good."
Wide receiver Jonathon Rumph was excused from the early portion of practice while finishing up some academic work, Richt said.
