ATHENS, Ga. (AP) -- Georgia coach Mark Richt says he has been
"freed up" from some administrative duties to spend more time on
football.
Coming off the Bulldogs' first losing record in 14 years, Richt
said Wednesday he supported changes put in place by athletic
director Greg McGarity after a 6-7 finish in 2010.
Richt says he'll have more time to "study" football because of
former strength coach Dave Van Halanger's role in a new mentor
program for athletes and John Eason's job as a liaison to
academics.
Richt says he's not taking the offensive coordinator job from
Mike Bobo and is not planning to call plays.
Richt announced no additional staff changes. He recently made
Joe Tereshinski the new strength coach.
McGarity attended Richt's news conference but did not speak with
reporters.
