Athletic director Greg McGarity says Richt was deserving of the raise because after guiding the Bulldogs within 5 yards of a trip to the national championship game. They came up just short against Alabama in the SEC title game, settling for a trip to the Capital One Bowl.
Georgia finished 12-2, improving Richt's career record to 118-40 in 12 seasons at Georgia. The Bulldogs have won two SEC titles during his tenure.

The Georgia Bulldogs football team released their version of the Harlem Shake on Wednesday. Despite their creative efforts and some great costumes, it still doesn’t top the Swim Team version from a few days ago; even getting the mascot “Hairy Dawg” to participate couldn’t help them. That being said, this was still a great video and the players definitely had fun with it.[YouTube]
