ATHENS, Ga. -- Georgia coach Mark Richt was discussing freshman kicker Marshall Morgan’s adventurous start to the season after Wednesday’s practice when a reporter asked for Richt’s thoughts on hiring a kicking coach.

Morgan -- who made field goals of 52 and 41 yards last week against Missouri, but also missed an extra point and has twice hit the left upright on successful PAT tries -- does not need help from another coach on staff, Richt said.

He noted that most kickers have grown up using personal kicking coaches -- which Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., native Morgan has done, training with Tim Conrad, who also instructed Tennessee’s Michael Palardy, Auburn’s Wes Byrum and Michigan State’s Brett Swenson -- and don’t need a college coach fiddling with the fundamentals that got them to this point.
