There's Plenty of "O" in "Bobo" . . . Two of Them, In Fact!

Great minds think alike: Mike Bobo has been named Georgia's new offensive coordinator.

Coach Bobo, a record-setting high school quarterback at Thomasville and a team captain of the 1996 and 1997 Bulldogs, has nine years' coaching experience at the collegiate level, including six as Georgia's quarterbacks coach under Mark Richt. During that time, he was the position coach under whose guidance David Greene became the winningest Q.B. in college football history, D.J. Shockley won an S.E.C. championship in his first and only season as a starter, and Matthew Stafford began to live up to his considerable potential.

We already know the guy has leadership skills. (Image from Ken Modak.)

At age 32, Coach Bobo is a year older than Vince Dooley was at the time he was named head coach of the Red and Black and a year younger than Mark Richt was at the time he was promoted from quarterbacks coach to offensive coordinator at Florida State. That ain't bad for a guy who used to engage in mischievous spider monkey antics with his brother on "Go, Diego, Go!"

This is a terrific move and it is further proof that Mark Richt is the finest head football coach in University of Georgia history.
