How Mark Richt fills the vacancy on his staff at the offensive coordinator position carries a lot of weight for the remainder of his tenure in Athens (however long that tenure will be).

Georgia will file for reinstatement of Todd Gurley today

The University of Georgia broke their silence regarding star RB Todd Gurley, saying that it will file for reinstatement today….

Via, Gurley made a statement….

I want to thank the University, coaches, teammates, and the Bulldog Nation for their patience and support. I take full responsibility for the mistakes I made, and I can’t thank the University, my coaches, and teammates enough for supporting me throughout this process. I’m looking forward to getting back on the field with my teammates.

Gurley’s attorney William King also issued a statement….

Todd has taken responsibility for his actions and is ready to rejoin his teammates. The University has been great throughout the past two weeks and has done everything it can to support Todd. I would especially like to thank President Morehead, Greg McGarity, and Coach Richt for standing by Todd.

Stay tuned for more details…
