Georgia athletic director Greg McGarity said that offensive coordinator Mike Bobo will interview at Colorado State for the head coaching job, Seth Emerson of The Macon Telegraph reports.

Florida hired Colorado State's Jim McElwain earlier this month to replace Will Muschamp. Colorado State went 22-16 in three seasons under McElwain, including a 10-2 mark this year en route to a berth in the Las Vegas Bowl.

Bobo, 40, joined Mark Richt's staff in 2001 as quarterback and has been Georgia's offensive coordinator since 2007. Georgia finished this season No. 4 in the Southeastern Conference in total offense, averaging 41.7 points and 455 yards per game.
