Miami was going to demand Richt make a change there and the money he left on the table wasn't worth it to him compared to having to fire his son. More than just firing his son though, it might also have been the fact that he was having staff decisions made for him. If we look back on his career here the chip on his shoulder grew to boulder size about the time he was forced to fire his buddy Willy Martinez. Facing pressure to make a QB change, I think he purposely threw an unprepared young man into the fire and let him go down in flames just to spite those who dared to force his hand.
