ATHENS — Mark Richt didn’t do a whole lot of moving around in his 33-year coaching career, so the former Georgia coach might be making up for some of that this spring.
Richt, who left his job as the Miami Hurricanes coach following the 2018 campaign and worked for the ACC Network last season, has found himself in a U-Haul the past week.
Road Warrior! I spent the last two days driving from Destin to Tallahassee to Nashville to Athens delivering furniture to our wonderful children! Over 15 hours in the Uhaul sharing the road with a bunch of 18 wheelers! I’m glad that is over! pic.twitter.com/IBi5tpdWJx

“I’ve gone from Destin to Tallahassee, to Nashville and Athens,” Richt told DawgNation on Thursday morning, sharing that there’s more moving activity ahead that he and his U-Haul will assist with.
Richt joined Mike Griffith for a special DawgNation presentation on Thursday and shared his thoughts on the status and return of college football along with his favorite Georgia football memories.
The 60-year-old Richt is less than five years removed from a successful stint as Georgia’s head coach, where he was 145-51 over his 15 seasons leading the Bulldogs to two SEC championships and five SEC East Division crowns.
Richt told DawgNation in January how impressed he has been with the direction Kirby Smart has led the program.
Covering the ACC last season, Richt had some background and insight into new Georgia players Jamie Newman and Tre’ McKitty, who transferred in from ACC schools Wake Forest and Florida State, respectively.
Richt was named the Walter Camp National Coach of the year at Miami in 2017, wrapping up his coaching career at the same school where he played quarterback from 1979-1982.
Time flies, but these days Richt is driving — a U-Haul, to be precise.
DawgNation appreciates Coach Richt taking time to make a pit stop for us and the Bulldogs’ fans!
