Richt, who coached Georgia from 2001-15 and led the Bulldogs to two SEC championships and three other SEC East titles, said, “I have been watching Jamie Newman all season with the ACC network. Georgia just landed a great one! I predict he will be the best quarterback in the SEC! Go Dawgs!”
At Georgia, Richt coached quarterbacks David Greene, D.J. Shockley, Matthew Stafford, Aaron Murray and Huston Mason, and Richt secured a commitment from quarterback Jacob Eason. Richt spent his season working for the ACC Network, which launched in August.
