Although Mark Richt wasn’t on the sidelines for UGA’s 24-17 victory over Penn State in Saturday’s TaxSlayer Bowl, he made sure to congratulate his former team.
The Bulldogs’ former coach gave them a shoutout on Twitter and had a special mention of the senior class, which notched its 40th win.
Congratulations to the Georgia Bulldog coaches and players! Great to see the senior class reach 40 wins! God Bless!

The bowl game was technically the final one of the Richt era at UGA, even though he has been at Miami since accepting the head coaching job at his alma mater on Dec. 4. While at UGA, Richt delivered several 10-win seasons and Saturday’s victory secured yet another.
