Miami releases homecoming video for Mark Richt
Welcome home, Mark Richt.
That was the headlining message in the 30-second video clip release by the University of Miami early Friday before the school officially introduces Richt has its next football coach.
The homecoming theme centers on Richt being a Florida native and a Miami alumnus.
It details where Richt grew up — in Boca Raton, Fla. — which is just more than a hour away from Miami’s campus in Coral Gables, Fla.
The video also features Richt’s coaching timeline, which included stints at Florida State and East Carolina before becoming UGA’s coach in 2001 through 2015.
The video mentions Richt’s impressive coaching record with the Bulldogs, which 145-51 and 85-40 against the SEC. He’s also 19-3 against ACC opponents.
Additionally, the video celebrates Richt’s two SEC championships at UGA and being named the SEC Coach of the Year twice. Richt took UGA to 14 consecutive bowl games and had nine seasons with 10 or more wins during his tenure.
It seems very clear that The U is excited to welcome back its hometown hero.
