I’ve got a great deal of respect for Coach Richt and the job he has done there and the University of Georgia will also have a special place in my heart. Not only did I play there, but my wife played basketball there and we have a lot of friends at UGA.
At the end of the day, I just feel like this is where I am supposed to be and this is a special time to be at the University of Alabama.
There are two ways to look at this now:
1.) Georgia made a good run at a very good head coach. The money being talked about should have been enough to lure virtually any coach away.
2.) They didn't get him -- or Chavis or Koenning or Foster or, through more than six weeks, anyone else.
