“My focus is beating Georgia Tech right now,” he said after both questions on Tuesday.
Beating the Yellow Jackets is something the long-time coach has done very well in his previous 14 meetings. Richt is 12-2 against the Bulldogs’ in-state foes. The Bulldogs are currently listed as five-point favorites to win in Atlanta this weekend.
Richt asked reporters: “Who made you ask that question?” after being asked about his future.
The Bulldogs are 8-3 on the season, but it has been a disappointing year - particularly on offense where production has fallen by nearly two touchdowns a game. The termination of Richt’s contract, with buyouts for assistant coaches included, would be about $8 million according to the most-recent contracts that have been signed.
