Well, it’s official.

Perhaps the worst kept secret in college football, Georgia just announced Kirby Smart will be leading the Bulldogs on the field next season as the head football coach.

The former Georgia football player will be heading to Athens after a successful run as defensive coordinator at Alabama under Nick Saban whose Crimson Tide just beat Florida Saturday night and clinched another SEC Championship.

Smart has agreed to a six-year contract that will pay him approximately $3.75 million per season, according to a memorandum released by UGA today.

Kirby will be replacing the position held by Mark Richt who was fired from Georgia last week.
