Texas Worried about Muschamp Heading to UGA?

It appears Texas is very worried about Will Muschamp heading to Athens to take over if Mark Richt is indeed fired at the end of the season.  According to Berry Tramel a columnist with The Daily Oklahoman,  that Texas may be in the process of pushing head coach Mack Brown out so the program can “get on” with the Muschamp era. 

According to Tramel, administrators inside the Texas program “have a belief” in Muschamp and don’t want to lose him to Georgia.  Muschamp is making $1.1 million in his role as head coach-in-waiting.  However, many believe he would jump at the opportunity to return the Athens where he played as a safety under Ray Goff.  If Muschamp becomeshead coach, he could expect at least a $1 million bump in salary which he would not be able to get in his currrent situation in Austin.  Another factor is that Brown is not expected to vacate his capacity as head coach anytime soon.

It is also believed that Muschamp would become one of McGarity’s top targets,  not only because of his status as an alumnus, but also where he learned the trade.  Muschamp was defensive coordinator under Nick Saban at LSU  and was a major part of the program’s national title run in 2003.  With Muschamp’s similar role in Texas the past four seasons, the 39 year old has coached under arguably the two best coaches in the game.  A very attractive resume for any AD looking for someone to rebuild their program. 

It will be interesting to see how this situation in Austin plays out.  However, I for one, have a hard time believing that Texas could force out someone as classy and successful as Mack Brown.

    Who the heck would want Muschamp? They can have him as far as I’m concerned.

    I for one would have a problem with Georgia forcing out someone as classy and successful as Mark Richt. So we agree on both accounts

      Okay Dawg Stephen, if Richt goes 2-9 and he’s forced out I guess you would have a problem since you care about one man instead of the greater good of the program. Please stop holding our program back. It’s bigger than one man!

    I think the greater good in the program is not always being pessimistic in thinking that we are going to go 2-9 and take one game at a time. Yeah, it sucks to lose, and I feel as awful watching the games unfold the way they do as you do, Kensingtondawg, BUT the reason it sucks is because the same coach that you’re wanting to chop is the one who spoiled us. Richt’s the reason we get upset about losing, because he made Dawg fans know what it’s like to win again!

      TuxedoDawg, 1-4 is terrible and I don’t care if Richt had ever shown up in Athens. That’s pathetic even under Ray Goff. If we were pissed off about going 8-4 I would say yes, that may have something to do with being spoiled by Richt. But, not 1-4 sorry.

      Also, I don’t we are going to go 2-9. I actually think we are going to win this weekend. But I’m tired of these blind loyalist who love Richt just because he’s a “good Christian man” and the wins and losses are secondary. I take pride in Richt’s faith and the class in which he leads our university. But that’s not the #1 job requirement.

    No, the #1 job requirement is to win games. I’m well aware of this, and that is the sole reason he should be the coach, not because of being a “good christian man,” but I am also getting tired of people wanting to get Richt on the next train out of town. I’m not making excuses for us being 1-4, that’s really, really bad, but one bad season doesn’t, in my opinion, kill an era or a program.

    I may be a blind loyal fan who doesn’t want Richt on the next train out of town, but I’d rather be that and actually attempt to enjoy some of this miserable season than one who uses a blog as a soapbox to preach how bad we’ve got it. We all know how bad it is, but it doesn’t mean we want to gloom over it, though.

    One season? 8-5 must have been just find for you last year? How about the year before when we were embarrassed by GT, Florida, and Alabama our three biggest games that season. Oh yeah, and we were the preseason #1 ranked team in America.

    Listen on this blog you will get opinion on both sides of the issue with Richt. Ucheedawg and myself are very disenchanted with they things are going in Athens. CorbinDawg is on the other side and is supporting this coach. That’s fine. We all love the Dawgs! If you have a problem with our blog there are others out there that will give you “we love Mark Richt” line 24/7. Maybe you should check those out.

    Richt’s first ten years: 8-4, 13-1, 11-3, 10-2, 10-3, 9-4, 11-2, 10-3, 8-5, 1-4; 91-31

    Dooley’s first ten years: 7-3-1, 6-4, 10-1, 7-4, 8-1-2, 5-5-1, 5-5, 11-1, 7-4, 7-4-1; 73-32-5

    Dooley’s regarded as not only one of the most iconic Dawgs of all time but one of the most iconic college football coaches of all time, rightly so, and above is his and Richt’s 10 yr. progress report so far.

    You don’t have to explain the breakdown of your blog to me, Kensingtondawg. I read it every single day. I know where Ucheedawg, Corbindawg, Barndawg, etc stand. I know where you stand. I enjoy Lewis Grizzard Wednesday, the Tuesday leans, the youtube video links, the majority of the blog. And I also love the Dawgs. I don’t have a problem with the blog; it’s a very good site. Don’t assume that just because I don’t necessarily agree with one post that I find fault with the entire website. You know what assuming does, right, Kensigntondawg?

      1st point-Mark Richt coaches more games per year than Dooley,
      2nd point-Richt never made $3 million a year coaching football.

    I know where Ucheedawg, Corbindawg, Barndawg, etc stand. I know where you stand, Kensingtondawg. I don’t need a breakdown. I enjoy this site very much. I enjoy the barbecue posts, Tuesday leans, Lewis Grizzard Wednesdays, and overall, everything. And I also love the Dawgs. Don’t assume that just because I don’t agree with one post by one blogger who sarcastically comments to his viewers that I’m disenchanted with your site. Because, well, we all know what assuming does, right, Kensingtondawg?
