The Georgia Bulldogs ended their 2015 regular season on a high note Saturday by beating the in-state rival Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets, 13-7. It was the fourth straight win for Georgia, who had lost three of four games in the middle of the season that led to speculation about head coach Mark Richt’s future with the team.

While talk of firing Richt seems to have calmed, Campus Sports has learned that Richt will be coaching his final game with the Bulldogs during bowl season.

According to a source close to the situation, Richt sent out a message to his players on Sunday morning stating the bowl game will be his final game as the team’s head coach. Following the bowl game, Richt is set to step down as head coach.

An official announcement is not expected until Richt meets with the team.

Campus Sports will update you with more information as it becomes available.
