ATHENS, GA (WALB) -

Former Georgia Coach Mark Richt will not coach the Bulldogs in their bowl game, according to sources in Athens.

He is expected to be named the head coach of the Miami Hurricanes as soon as Friday.

The Bulldogs' bowl game, and their opponent, have not been decided yet.

Former University of Georgia head football coach Mark Richt has made the decision that he will not coach the Bulldogs in their upcoming bowl game.  He informed the team Thursday afternoon.

UGA Sr. Associate Athletic Director Claude Felton issued a release Thursday:

UGA J. Reid Parker Director of Athletics Greg McGarity has named assistant head coach Bryan McClendon, who also coaches wide receivers, as the interim head coach.

Offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer and defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt, as well as all other assistant coaches, will remain in their present roles with current responsibilities.

"I've asked Bryan to assume all administrative duties of the head coach," said McGarity.  "This will be the least disruptive option for our players and staff as they begin preparations for our bowl game."
