Richt talks Dawgs

AUGUSTA – Mark Richt spoke to the local Georgia Bulldog Club in Augusta today, and answered some important questions.

The Georgia head coach told reporters that two off-the-field incidents will have punishment determined at a later time. Clint Boling and Jeremy Lomax were both arrested recently – Boling for DUI (a charge he is fighting) and Lomax on a concealed weapon charge.

"I am thinking it through right now," said Richt of the outcome of punishment for Lomax's arrest. The senior was arrested in early June after being pulled over for going 80 mph in a 55 mph zone. Lomax told the arresting officer that he had a .40 Glock under the driver's seat. If Lomax had the gun in his glove compartment he would not have been charged.

"I am going to take my time to think about what I am going to do," Richt added.

With regard to Boling, Richt did not comment further on the matter even though the University held a hearing today regarding the matter. Typically Richt has suspended players two games for offenses such as Boling's, but Richt gave no indication of the punishment, or the time at which he will release his punishment.

Richt also said he was keeping in contact with 2008 signee Xavier Avery, who was selected 50th in the Major League Baseball Draft last week.

"He's not sure how long it will take him to decide what to do," Richt said. "I told him to keep me in the loop."

Richt also indicated that 2008 signee Bryce Ros was slated to play tight end this fall – not fullback.

"I think he just needs to learn how to play tight end (right now)," Richt said.
