Georgia’s Richt: Murray ‘has not won the job’

With freshman Zach Mettenberger out of the competition for the starting nod following his dismissal from the team, Georgia's depth at quarterback could suffer another blow if Logan Gray decides to leave the school.

The junior met with Bulldogs head coach Mark Richt early Monday to discuss his future at the school after rumors swirled that he may transfer. The sentiment is that freshman Aaron Murray has already won the starting quarterback job.

The only scholarship signal-caller behind Murray, who ended spring practice atop the depth chart, Gray sat behind Joe Cox last season while playing mostly on special teams. He considered changing positions after the season but decided to remain at quarterback for spring drills. He went 10 of 17 passing for 132 yards and one TD in the Bulldogs’ spring game, while Murray completed 10 of 22 through the air for 96 yards with one interception.

Believing that Murray was more consistent throughout the spring, specifically in his accuracy and decision-making, Richt pronounced him the No. 1 quarterback on the depth chart. However, while at the Savannah Bulldog Club at the Savannah Golf Club on Wednesday for a school function, Richt reiterated that no decision on the starting gig has been made.

“Aaron has not won the job. I've been saying that since the day the depth chart came out,” Richt declared. “All the depth chart says is where we see him right now. Aaron might win the job. Logan Gray might win the job. Hutson Mason might win the job, for that matter.”

Mason, the only other scholarship quarterback expected to be on the roster, is a Parade magazine All-America pick who won’t arrive until the fall.

If Murray does start the opener, he would be the first Georgia freshman to start a season opener under center since David Greene in 2001.
