It didn’t take long for Mark Richt to find a new gig.
The former Georgia and Miami head coach, who abruptly stepped down at UM in December, has been hired by ESPN as a studio analyst on the ACC Network.
“I was able to coach for 12 seasons in the ACC, and so, I’m very excited about the opportunity to join ACC Network as a football analyst,” Richt said in an ESPN press release. “I’m not only looking forward to helping tell the story of one of the greatest football conferences in America, but also staying close to the game that I love so much.”
Richt, 59, was on Bobby Bowden’s Florida State staff first as a graduate assistant (1985-88) then as quarterbacks coach (1990-93) and offensive coordinator (1994-2000). FSU joined the ACC for football in 1992. From 2016-18, Richt coached at Miami, his alma mater. Richt went 26-13 as head coach of the Hurricanes.
The ACC Network is set to launch on Aug. 22, 2019.
