AUBURN, Ala. -- Georgia coach Mark Richt laughed off a report that he could be a candidate for the coaching job at Colorado.

After a 49-31 loss to No. 2 Auburn, Richt was asked if he would be interested in meeting with the Big 12 school. According to the Denver Post, an unidentified source close to the search said the Buffaloes want to talk to the Georgia coach after firing Dan Hawkins a week ago.

Richt's response: "Georgia's my home."

The Bulldogs (5-6, 3-5) have endured their second straight disappointing season, needing a win in their final game against Georgia Tech just to be bowl eligible. But Richt makes just under $3 million at Georgia, while Colorado has said it can't afford to pay more than $2 million for Hawkins' replacement.
