Mark Richt is headed to Miami, according to multiple reports. Richt, 55, is a Hurricanes’ alumnus, having played quarterback for the program. He’ll make the move to South Florida after leading Georgia since 2001.
Miami fans appear to be extremely excited with the hire.
They have a question, though: does this mean Jacob Eason, a five-star quarterback in the 2016 class, will be following Richt from Georgia to Miami?
Eason at least appears to be happy for Richt. He favorited a tweet congratulating Richt on his new job.
Eason, a 6-foot-5, 205-pound prospect out of Washington, is ranked the No. 1 QB in the country by 247 Sports’ Composite Rankings. He’s been committed to Georgia since July 2014, though the Bulldogs’ decision to get rid of Richt could affect his commitment.
If Richt gets Jacob Eason to go with him to Miami, he’ll win a national title there. Never had a QB as good as Eason in Athens.

The recruit’s high school coach reassured Georgia fans yesterday, though the quarterback has yet to comment on his commitment. He reportedly took a visit to Florida recently.
More to come.
