"My comment is no comment," Richt said Thursday. "I'm not making any comment."
But it now appears the deal is done as Georgia's sports information office has scheduled a 5 PM teleconference with the media "regrading the 2011 Bulldog Football Schedule."
"Gene (Bleymaier) keeps those types of things pretty close to him," Associate Athletic Director Bob Madden said Thursday night.
Bleymaier did not return phone calls to his office on Thursday and was not in the office on Friday. Georgia AD Greg McGarity told Seth Emerson of the Macon Telegraph: "I just can't say anything right now."
