Kirby Smart explains why he felt comfortable naming Mike Bobo as Georgia offensive coordinator

ATHENS — Mike Bobo is not new to the Georgia football program. He played with Kirby Smart during the 90′s. Bobo then served as the quarterbacks coach and offensive coordinator under Mark Richt.

Last year, Bobo was on staff as analyst helping with play design. He worked closely with Todd Monken.

Now he’ll have to replace Monken as the Georgia offensive coordinator. It’ll be a tall task for Bobo but one his players are excited to see him take on.

“He did a lot for us last year,” Wide receiver Ladd McConkey said. “Helping us out, whether it be calling plays or giving us insight on running a route. I’m super excited that he’s here and taking over. I’m looking forward to it and I feel like we can be better than ever.”

Smart knew that Monken would only leave Georgia for an NFL job, which happened in February when he became the offensive coordinator of the Baltimore Ravens. It wasn’t until after the national championship win over TCU that Smart considered that Monken might leave and thought about who might be his replacement.
