ATLANTA (AP) -- Mark Richt says he has no interest in leaving
Georgia for another job -- even at his alma mater.
The Georgia coach also says he plans no staff changes following
a 6-6 regular season.
Richt is a former Miami quarterback and has been mentioned as a
possible candidate to succeed Miami coach Randy Shannon, who was
fired on Saturday night.
Richt said Sunday he does not expect the Miami position to be a
distraction as the Bulldogs await a bowl bid, possibly to the
Liberty Bowl in Memphis. He said Georgia is his home and where he
hopes to finish his career.
Asked if he fully expects to be Georgia's coach in 2011, Richt
said "Absolutely."
Georgia became bowl-eligible by beating Georgia Tech 42-34 on
Saturday night. Georgia Tech also is 6-6 and awaiting a bowl bid.
