Following a season-ending victory, Les Miles hung onto his coaching job.
Mark Richt did not.
The Georgia Bulldogs fired Richt, who had been their coach for 15 seasons, on Sunday. Richt had nine 10-win seasons, and if Richt stays on the job and wins a bowl game, this would be his 10th.
Richt was 145-51 with two SEC titles. His team was 9-3 this year. The school released a statement saying it and Richt had “mutually agreed” to part ways.
All week, the scuttlebutt was that LSU would part ways with Miles. After LSU’s win on Saturday night, however, it was announced that Miles would keep his job. Earlier in the day, FSU’s Jimbo Fisher had announced that he wouldn’t be leaving for another job.
