The University of Georgia in firing Coach Mark Richt and hiring Kirby Smart allow both men to return to where they played their college ball. For Kirby Smart he gets a shot at what he himself calls his dream job. He has the pedigree being a Nick Saban assistant. UGA is hoping he will bring what he has learned at ‘Bama to Athens. If he can he will be the new King of Athens.
For Mark Richt he hopes to repeat the turnaround job he did at UGA for the U, a team he played back up Miami and NFL legend Jim Kelly. His low key demeanor and clean cut reputation will bring stability and respectability back to a program that has underachieved since coming back from NCAA sanctions. If he can being the school back to national prominence then this scripture will have more meaning for him than ever.
‘And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God,…’ Romans 8:28a
