Former Georgia football coach Mark Richt had a heart attack Monday morning. It was minor and he is going to be “fine,” according to the post he sent out on Twitter Monday afternoon.
Richt, 59, coached for 15 years at Georgia, where he won 74 percent of his games (145-51). After being fired by the Bulldogs in 2015, Richt coached for four seasons at Miami, his alma mater.
Richt retired two years ago and currently is working as a college football analyst for the ACC Network.
Richt currently resides in Destin, Fla. Much of his extended family still lives in Athens.
We'll provide more details when they become available.
