Mark Richt has no hard feelings toward the University of Georgia. At least that’s what he has always displayed publicly.
In speaking to Chris Low of ESPN, Richt was likely asked about how he feels about Georgia now that he’s more than a year removed from being the Bulldogs’ football coach.
“I’m not bitter, not mad at anybody,” Richt told Low. “I was blessed to be at a great place like Georgia for 15 years.”
Mark Richt is pure class. "I'm not bitter, not mad at anybody. I was blessed to be at a great place like Georgia for 15 years," he told me.

Richt is tied for second all-time in school history in wins and won two SEC championships in his time with Georgia. But his last SEC title was in 2005. After the Bulldogs went 9-3 in the 2015 season, Richt was let go. He ended up at Miami (Fla.), where he went 9-4 in his first season with the Hurricanes.
Richt is doing well at Miami, especially on the recruiting trail. The Hurricanes currently have the No. 1 recruiting class in the 2018 cycle.
Kirby Smart brought in the No. 3 recruiting class for Georgia in 2017 and went 8-5 in his first season replacing Richt.
