Former Georgia star Champ Bailey sounds off on Mark Richt
Mark Richt’s future at Georgia has been talked about a lot lately, particularly since the Bulldogs lost 27-3 to archrival Florida last Saturday.
On Friday, former Georgia All-American Champ Bailey appeared on The Rude Awakening radio show on Atlanta’s 680 The Fan, and made it clear that he thinks it’s time for Richt to go.
“I think it’s about time to end this era,” Bailey said on the show. “I mean there’s obviously some things over there that we can’t fix at this point, and it’s probably time to move on. I mean 15 years at one place is a long time.”

Bailey was a standout cornerback at Georgia from 1996-98, and played 14 seasons in the NFL with the Denver Broncos, Washington Redskins and New Orleans Saints.
Richt has been Georgia’s head coach since 2001. He has won 141 games in 15 seasons, and led the Bulldogs to two SEC championships. But this year, Georgia is just 5-3, and there has been plenty of speculation about whether or not this is his final season.
