Kirby Smart is adjusting to the new normal of working at home just like everyone else. And like so many other adults at home, that means sometimes having kids in your workspace.
Smart showed first hand what’s that like while conducting an interview with ESPN’s Laura Rutledge.
While the Georgia head coach was answering Rutledge’s question, Smart was interrupted by his son, who wanted to show him a picture of a snake that was in their driveway.

Hopefully, that incredibly human moment with Smart is able to bring a smile to your face.
While speaking with reporters last week, Smart provided further detail on how he’s adjusting to life at home.
“I’ve enjoyed the time around the kids. So many people say it happens so fast that you blink and their gone,” Smart said. “We’re actually getting to be present in their lives more than we ever have. I may never get this time again. So just trying to make the most of that.”
Smart has three children, two of whom are twins and a younger boy, who was seen in the video above. Smart said last week that he lacks the patience to home school kids and has gained a tremendous amount of respect for teachers, especially those who teach first from fourth grade.
He added that he’s learned a couple of lessons during this time. One came via exercising with his wife, Mary Beth, who was a former Georgia basketball player.
“I’ve figured this out. I’m not getting up at 6:30 again and going down with my wife to the Peloton to ride a bike,” Smart said. “That only happened once and that won’t happen again.”
Georgia has been still putting in plenty of work when it comes to the football program. The Georgia coaching staff is allowed to meet with players for four hours a week via-telecommuting. And while Georgia coaches can’t visit prospects or have prospects visit, Georgia has landed two commitments this week.
As for a return to football, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported there is a “strong conviction” that there will be college football this year.
Speaking to people in and around college football this week, there is “strong conviction” there will be college football this season. Uncertainty about when – multiple scenarios being debated – but they sound certain there still will be college football this season.
