There you have it.  Richt and Evans have hired Todd Grantham from the Dallas Cowboys as the new athletic director for a 3 year deal worth 750K/year.  Take it as a positive that they're dedicated to do what it takes to get UGA back in contention in the SEC.  The process, while a little nerve-wracking, worked, and it sounds like we shouldn't have ever doubted Richt and Evans.  Whew!  Breathe a sigh of relief!  Of course, I don't think any UT fans felt like they ever should have doubted Kiffin and company. 

What kind of guy is he?  He runs a 3-4 defense which is what several other pro teams have (Steelers, Cowboys, Patriots, etc), which means that we're going to need linebackers.  I personally would have loved to see Rennie Curran in this defense.  As to his philosophy, in his words:

"I look forward to developing an aggressive, physical, attacking style defense that offenses will not look forward to playing against."

"After the game is over," he said, "the team you just played is happy they don't have to play you anymore."

So how should we feel?  Why don't you ask Mark Richt?

“I think we hit the jackpot,” Richt said.
