ATHENS, Ga. (WRCB) -- Georgia offensive coordinator Mike Bobo is garnering some "long-overdue consideration" for head coaching jobs across the country, his agent told the Atlanta Journal Constitution Thursday.
In an interview with the AJC, Birmingham-based attorney Russ Campbell said Bobo has recently received inquiries from several schools. The Hattiesburg American reported Thursday that Southern Miss may be one of those schools.
Bobo, a 38-year-old former Georgia quarterback, became an assistant on Mark Richt's staff in 2001 and was promoted to offensive coordinator in 2007.
This season he was a finalist for the Broyles Award, which goes annually to the top assistant in the nation, after calling plays for an offense that set Georgia records for the most points and touchdowns in a single season.
