The Cellphone Ringtone Of Georgia Coach Mark Richt Is, Unsurprisingly, A Dog Barking

What do you think is the ringtone of Georgia coach Mark Richt’s cellphone?  Richt, 54, was born in 1960, so perhaps it’s one of Elvis Presley’s No. 1 hits from that year, either “It’s Now Or Never,” or “Are You Lonesome Tonight?” Or maybe, due to Richt’s current place of residence, it’s “Georgia On My Mind” by Ray Charles.
