Richt is a former Miami quarterback and has been mentioned as a possible candidate to succeed Miami coach Randy Shannon, who was fired on Saturday night.
Richt said Sunday he does not expect the Miami position to be a distraction as the Bulldogs await a bowl bid, possibly to the Liberty Bowl in Memphis. He said Georgia is his home and where he hopes to finish his career.READ MORE: Varieties Of Starburst, Skittles & Life Savers Gummies Recalled
