Georgia athletic director Greg McGarity told Bulldog fans in an email that he is working on extension for head coach Mark Richt. Per ESPN:
"I look forward to working alongside Mark in the future and in helping him move our program forward in all areas," McGarity wrote in the email to athletic department donors, which was obtained by ESPN.com. "We will be working on a contract extension with Mark over the coming days. I know Mark is focused on completing his coaching staff and recruiting."
Richt has three years left on a contract that pays him $3.2 million annually and runs through the 2017 season. He is the seventh-highest-paid coach in the SEC. The school would owe Richt $800,000 per year if he was dismissed before the end of the contract.
