Mark Richt approves of Georgia hiring Mike Bobo

Former Georgia Bulldogs head coach Mark Richt approves of Kirby Smart hiring Mike Bobo as the program’s new offensive coordinator.

Richt’s approval should be no surprise for Georgia fans. Mike Bobo coached under Mark Richt at Georgia from 2001 to 2014.

Under Richt, Bobo coached quarterbacks from 2001 to 2006. Bobo was the Bulldogs’ offensive coordinator from 2007 to 2014.

Mike Bobo returned to Georgia last season. He served as an offensive analyst for Georgia in 2022.

Bobo replaces former Georgia offensive coordinator Todd Monken,

 who accepted the Ravens’ offensive coordinator job.

During the Mark Richt era, Mike Bobo coached talented offensive players like Todd Gurley, Matthew Stafford,

 Aaron Murray, and more. Perhaps Bobo and Richt’s best year in Athens came in 2012 when Georgia finished the season 12-2.

Yes, Georgia lost a heartbreaker to Alabama in the 2012 SEC championship,

 but the Dawgs averaged 37.8 points per game and scored 28 points or more in every game except for two.
