Richt denies job reports

In a statement released by UGA Sports Communictions, Georgia coach Mark Richt issued a strongly worded denial Saturday afternoon to all rumors and reports that have linked him to openings at Texas A&M, Penn State or anywhere else.

"I've said many times Georgia is the place I want to be as long as Georgia will have me. That has never changed," Richt said. "And it’s gratifying to know Georgia wants me. I have not talked to any other school about a job nor do I have any interest in doing so. My interest is having a great recruiting year and start building toward next season."

Richt began talks Friday about a contract extension, according to UGA athletics director Greg McGarity.

"I know Mark wants to be here, and we want him here," McGarity told Dawgs247. "There's just some things we need to work on moving forward."
