McGarity speaks to SEC about calls in UGA-Tennessee game

So we learned earlier in the day that Georgia was losing an offensive lineman. But could the big news of the day involve the Bulldogs actually losing their offensive line coach?, the Rivals site that covers Texas, is reporting that Stacey Searels is "on his way to Austin." (It's a pay site, so I can't link the story.) But Orangebloods, you will recall, led the way with their Big 12 expansion stories last summer.

There's no word out of Georgia on the matter yet: A team spokesman couldn't be reached right away, and head coach Mark Richt and offensive coordinator were meeting with a recruit this afternoon.

Stay tuned.


I just spoke with former Auburn offensive line coach Hugh Nall, who now is out of the coaching business and living in Albany, Ga. Nall, who knows Searels, said he hasn't spoken to him, but wouldn't be surprised if it were true.

“I think anytime a coach anywhere leaves, it’s not a surprise anymore really. Especially with the money these days,” he said. “I coached at TCU for six years, and there’s a lot of lineman in the state, and Texas gets the pick of what they want.”

Nall was asked if he was interested in getting back into coaching at some point.

"Not unless my boss says I need to," he said.


Two more people who claimed no knowledge of Searels' plans: Georgia athletics director Greg McGarity, and Tanner Strickland, his former offensive lineman.

"Mark's on the road," McGarity said of Richt, meaning that he hasn't had a chance to speak with the coach about any potential staff moves.

Mark Richt averages # 52 NCAA Total Offense all 10 years of the Mark Richt era.

This 2010 season, we are

# 56 Total Offense

# 55 Third Down Conversions

# 62 Aaron Murray getting sacks (1.9 yds carry on 87 rushes)

# 72 in 1st Downs.

# 72 in 1st Downs and Mike Bobo is "GREAT" to quote Fran Tarkenton quoting Mark Richt, the LIAR.
