[su_spacer size=”20″] UGA athletic director Greg McGarity named Brian McClendon as interim head coach. The move came after former head coach Mark Richt announced that he would not be with the team for its upcoming bowl. Richt, of course, is moving on to his new role as head coach of the Miami Hurricanes.
