Murray's ankle is fine, Glenn is a tackle, and more from Richt

Mark Richt just finished a rather length press conference, not so much because there was much to say but because it had been a month since he last spoke to us media hacks.

Here are the highlights:

- Cordy Glenn is definitely going to play tackle, after starting at guard the past few seasons. Richt said Glenn, tackle Trinton Sturdivant and center Ben Jones are pretty much set.

- Aaron Murray should be a full-go for the first day of practice. That's according to both Richt and Murray, who said earlier that he had his walking boot taken off and wasn't experiencing any issues.

(Speaking of which, Richt said he wasn't going to ban any players from any non-football activities, like soccer, basketball, skiing or whatever. But Murray said he was laying off soccer for awhile.)

- Kirk Olividatti, the new inside linebackers coach, will take over Warren Belin's duties as the kickoff coverage coach.

And Will Friend, the new offensive line coach, will take over Stacy Searels' previous duties as extra point/field goals coach. "I haven't told coach Friend yet, but if he reads the paper ..." Richt said.

- Receiver Rantavious Wooten has put on about 12 pounds in the offseason conditioning program. Freshman Chris Conley, an early enrollee, has also put on about 11-12 pounds, according to Richt.

- There's no plan yet on whether freshman Christian LeMay or Hutson Mason will redshirt. "It'll probably be deep into camp before we can start talking about that," Richt said.
