ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Georgia coach Mark Richt says assistant Todd
Grantham was caught up in the emotions of an overtime game when he
gave a choke sign to Florida kicker Chas Henry.

A television snapshot from Sun Sports in Florida shows Grantham,
Georgia's defensive coordinator, with one hand on his throat as
Henry lined up for his winning field goal in the Gators' 34-31 win
on Saturday.

When asked about the unusual gesture by his assistant, Richt
said Tuesday that he doesn't think Grantham is "necessarily proud
of it." Richt says Grantham will "learn from it and move on,"
but did not say he faces any disciplinary action.

Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray says Grantham, the former
Dallas Cowboys assistant, is a fiery and animated coach. Murray
says he doesn't think Grantham's choke sign was a big deal.
