Richt buoyed by strong finish to 8-5 season

By  | 

ATLANTA (AP) - Mark Richt's search for Georgia's next defensive
coordinator is still on.

LSU officials say they have reached a new deal to keep John
Chavis as defensive coordinator after Chavis drew interest from

Richt's Bulldogs capped an 8-5 season with a 44-20 win over
Texas A&M in Monday night's Independence Bowl. The win followed a
30-24 victory over then-No. 7 Georgia Tech to close the regular

Georgia's streak of 13 consecutive season with eight or more
wins is the longest in the nation, but that wasn't a point Richt
celebrated on Thursday as he reviewed the season.

The search for Georgia's next starting quarterback will be the
highlight of spring practice.
