Report: Mark Richt interviewing Wednesday with UVA
Mark Richt’s whereabouts and appointment schedule have been a popular topic since he was terminated as UGA’s coach this past weekend.
Richt was expected to be in town to interview for the vacant Virginia job on Wednesday, per the Charlottesville Newsplex’s Damon Dillman. ESPN’s Mark Schlabach reported Tuesday that Richt would interview with the Cavaliers.
Virginia fired coach Mike London after six seasons, during which he reached one bowl game. As Schlabach noted in a tweet, Charlottesville, Va., is a similar college town to Athens, Ga.
The Cavaliers have been largely inconsistent since George Welsh left in 2000, reaching a bowl game only six times since. Virginia has never won the ACC outright but has tied for a conference crown twice.
Richt reportedly met with Miami officials in Atlanta on Tuesday to interview with his alma mater. His name has also been connected with the openings at Maryland and Missouri, though the Terrapins have reportedly found their new coach, Michigan defensive coordinator (and former Florida assistant) D.J. Durkin.
Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen has also been linked to the opening at Virginia.
