Just caught this on rivals.com:
UGASports has also learned that former Bulldog defensive captain and New Orleans Saints assistant defensive line coach Travis Jones has spoken with Richt in the past week.
Jones, who is helping prepare the Saints for next week's NFC Divisional Playoff game, could not immediately be reached for comment due to a death in the family.
Prior to arriving in New Orleans, Jones spent three years with the Miami Dolphins under for coach Nick Saban, with whom he spent two seasons at LSU, where he was the Tigers' defensive line coach/recruiting coordinator.I do wonder if he is talking to him for a position other than DC? If he is it seems like a step down doesn't it? If not could you imagine snagging both Jones and Smart? I am aware of the drawbacks of hiring all UGA alum, but just the fact we are starting to see message traffic on this deal is very exciting indeed. Enjoy your Sunday, we might have an exciting start to next week.
