Report: Missouri among schools that have contacted ex-UGA coach Mark Richt
Mark Richt said Monday night that “about five” schools have contacted him since his time as UGA’s coach ended Sunday.
One of those schools is reportedly Maryland, and he could meet with representatives from the Big Ten school as soon as Tuesday.
Another surfaced Monday night, when Power Mizzou’s Gabe DeArmond tweeted that Missouri is on that list.
Richt said he would like to coach again earlier Monday, and it hasn’t taken long for schools to check in with him. He won two SEC titles and 145 games in 15 seasons with UGA.
Missouri needs to replace Gary Pinkel, who was the winningest coach in program history but resigned to focus on his health after being diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
