Mark Richt wishes Georgia well on the upcoming season

Mark Richt is a class act.

Despite parting ways from the University of Georgia in 2015, the Miami Hurricanes head coach still hopes nothing but the best for his former team. 

Richt and Bulldogs agreed to go their separate ways in 2015 after 15 seasons together. Less than a week later, Richt was hired by his alma mater. 

The Hurricanes open the season with Bethune-Cookman on Sept. 2 while the Bulldogs play Appalachian State that same day.
