Virginia Tech showed interest in UGA’s Bobo

Georgia offensive coordinator Mike Bobo was probably already heading for a boost in salary after the Bulldogs set a school record for scoring this
season.

ESPN’s Mark Schlabach reported on Twitter Saturday from that Bobo turned down an offer last week to become Virginia Tech’s offensive coordinator. That can only help his chances for a salary increase.

“It doesn’t surprise me that other schools would show an interest after our offensive performance of late,” Georgia athletic director Greg McGarity said. “We’re happy he’s on our staff.”

McGarity praised the work Bobo and his offensive staff did this season when Georgia averaged 37.8 points per game and finished 12-2. McGarity also said he likes what’s happening off the field in recruiting.

Bobo, a finalist this past season for the Broyles Award for nation’s top assistant, makes $335,000 annually. He’s the second-highest for an assistant at Georgia but in the bottom half of SEC offensive coordinators.

McGarity said Georgia will “get through recruiting and address” changes in salaries at the next athletic board meeting in February.
