JACKSONVILLE – Someone has noticed Georgia’s high-scoring ways.

Georgia Southern is interested in Georgia offensive coordinator Mike Bobo, according to – a website dedicated to news related to coaching vacancies at all levels of football.

The website cites sources stating that Bobo “has interviewed for the head job at Georgia Southern.”

When reached for comment Monday night, Bobo said he would not discuss the opening at Georgia Southern. But a source has confirmed that Bobo has, in fact, talked with Georgia Southern athletics director Tom Kleinlein about the job.

The Eagles’ most recent coach, Jeff Monken, just left the Statesboro school to take over as the head coach at Army. Kleinlein told the Macon Telegraph Monken made $260,000 as the coach at Georgia Southern last year.

Bobo, on the other hand, made $585,000 in 2013. Bobo made less than at least two coaches who were fired last year – Manny Diaz (Texas defensive coordinator; $650,000) and Brent Pease (Florida; $600,000).

Bobo blistered several coordinators who make more than he does including scoring at least 35 points on: LSU’s John Chavis (44 points; $1.1 million), Georgia Tech’s Ted Roof (41 points; $600,000), South Carolina’s Lorenzo Ward (41 points; $650,000), Auburn’s Ellis Johnson (38 points; $800,000) and Clemson’s Brent Venables (35 points, $800,000).
