The college football coaching carousel has gotten deeper. According to ESPN, the Georgia Bulldogs has fired head coach Mark Richt.

He has been the Bulldogs head coach for the past 15-years. However, speculation that this day may come after his Bulldogs lost to the Florida Gators in Jacksonville on Halloween.

With Richt being fired, they’ll have an interim head coach in the team’s bowl game. The team went 9-3 this season with the other losses to the Alabama Crimson Tide and the Tennessee Volunteers in back-to-back weeks in October.

Before the start of the season, they were the SEC East favorites, but got blown out by the Tide and the Gators. With the Halloween loss, the Gators clinched a spot in the SEC Championship game.

On Saturday in his final game at the school, the Bulldogs won 13-7 over the woeful Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets.

This is the Bulldogs first coaching change since 2000 when Jim Donnan was fired.

Richt was 145-51 during his tenure. He had nine 10-plus win seasons, including a career-best 13-1 record during the 2002 season.

He only had one losing season with the Bulldogs, which was a 6-7 record in the 2010 season.
