Post Bobo promoted to offensive coordinator

Tuesday December 19, 2006

In a move that doesn’t surprise many people, Mark Richt has promoted quarterbacks coach Mike Bobo to offensive coordinator. Richt had already turned over the playcalling reigns to Bobo, and this move was an expected progression in Bobo’s career. The departure of offensive line coach and offensive coordinator Neil Callaway to UAB opened up the position.

The coordinator position is a lot more than playcalling. He’s responsible for installing and executing the offensive package for each game including scouting, practice schedule, play scripting, and so on. While Richt called the plays, the coordinator still had a large role. Now it looks as if both that role and the playcalling role will go to Bobo. For everyone who has been critical of Callaway and for Richt holding on to too much control, it’s now Bobo’s show.
