Mark Richt couldn't stay away from home for too long.

While his most recent coaching tenure saw him lead the Miami Hurricanes (2016-18), the vast majority Richt's career took place in Athens, Georgia, coaching the Bulldogs from 2001-15.

On Wednesday evening, the long-time Georgia coach showed off his new digs Athens -- purchasing a second home to remain closer to family. Richt took to Twitter, posting a photo in front of the house with his wife, Katharyn.

After retiring from the Hurricanes program in 2018, Richt settled down in a Destin, Florida home. The former coach and his family will reportedly split time between the two homesteads.

“We will be back-and-forth,” Richt told the Athens Banner-Herald.

Through his 15 years coaching the Bulldogs, Richt put together a pretty stellar resume with the program. Winning became the norm in Athens as he led the team to a 145-51 regular season record as well as a 9-5 record in the postseason. With nine 10-win seasons under his belt, he became the second winningest coach in Georgia history (behind Vince Dooley) with a .740 win percentage.

After he was dismissed in 2015, the coach took a golden opportunity to coach at his alma mater. Through three seasons with the Hurricanes, Richt notched a 26-13 overall record.

With great memories in each state, it's only fitting he has roots in both locations.
