Miami head football coach Mark Richt retired earlier today, leaving the Hurricanes after three seasons. Richt came to South Florida after a long and successful stint at Georgia.
While he came up short of winning a national title at UGA, Richt won the SEC East five times and the SEC title twice.
He compiled a 145-51 record with the Bulldogs, reaching a bowl game in all of his 15 seasons from 2001-15. Needless to say, Richt has earned a lot of respect from former Georgia players and Bulldog fans.
This afternoon, former Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray posted a heartfelt tribute to Richt on Twitter.
Current Georgia head coach Kirby Smart also chimed in with his own message to Richt.
Smart was a member of Richt's staff at UGA in 2005 as an assistant coach.
For his career, Richt finished with a 171-64 overall record.
