Mark Richt has weighed in on Georgia’s appearance in the National Championship Game, and he’s eager to deliver well wishes to his former team.
On Monday, the former Bulldogs coach used Twitter to write that he’s “happy for the players, coaches and the Georgia people” as Georgia gets set to play Alabama to decide the national title on Monday night at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. This is a nice move from Richt, who compiled a 145-51 record as Georgia’s coach from 2001-15.
Good luck to the Dawgs tonight! I’m happy for the players, coaches, and the Georgia people! U Family!

This is a classy gesture by the coach, who clearly still has feelings for his former program. He gave life to Miami this season while leading the Hurricanes to a 10-3 record with an appearance in the ACC Championship Game and Orange Bowl.
It’s safe to say Richt will be watching closely Monday night with the Bulldogs on his mind.
