Georgia’s head coach Mark Richt and defensive coordinator Todd Grantham finally got their new deals from the athletic association. Athletic director Greg McGarity took time to point out that Richt did not get an extension of his old contract; rather he received an entirely new one that keeps him at Georgia until 2016. It took six months to get the two contracts finalized after they were announced in December. That long wait, plus the newly released details, are the basis for this week’s roundtable discussion:

“What do you think is the most interesting element of the new contracts for Mark Richt and Todd Grantham?”

David Ching: The most interesting element of Richt's new contract is not just that they removed the monetary penalty if Richt opts to leave before the contract ends -- it was previously a minimum of $2 million -- but that athletic director Greg McGarity was apparently the one who proposed the change.
