Mark Richt wishes Georgia good luck, Kirby Smart responds 

Former University of Georgia football coach Mark Richt still has a soft spot for Bulldog fans.

Over the weekend, the University of Miami coach tweeted that although he was excited about what the Hurricanes have built in the offseason, he wanted to wish his former team good luck.

“I would also like to wish the Dawgs the very best,” Richt tweeted in part.

After Richt’s gesture of good will, current Georgia coach Kirby Smart tweeted a message back to his predecessor.
