Perhaps no aspect of a college football program is more vital to a team’s success than strength and conditioning. It’s why there are two-a-days in the dog days of August, why there are voluntary (but really mandatory) 6 a.m. lifting sessions in the winter, and why most schools pay a strength coach hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Georgia, like every other program, understands this. But being in good shape doesn’t just relate to the players. The coaches want to be trim and fit, too, apparently.
Bulldogs’ coach Mark Richt has spent some of his offseason sending hand-drawn pictures to high school recruits, but he’s also been shedding some weight.
Mark Richt also says he’s dropped about 20 pounds. “I went from gross to kind of fat.”
