"I've said many times Georgia is the place I want to be as long as Georgia will have me," Richt said in a statement - coming in the midst of one of the biggest recruiting weekends of the year for his program.
"That has never changed. And it’s gratifying to know Georgia wants me. My interest is having a great recruiting year and start building toward next season."
Richt's statement, and AD Greg McGarity's Friday, contradicts a story in the Houston Chronicle which states that Richt turned down the Texas A&M job.
"I have not talked to any other school about a job nor do I have any interest in doing so," Richt said.
The article in the Houston Chronicle does not quote anyone regarding Richt - and doesn't back up claims by another outlet that Richt was in College Station on Wednesday, but mentioned it in the story nonetheless.
