WATCH: Mark Richt pauses interview so he can greet former Georgia player J.J. Green
Though Georgia parted ways with coach Mark Richt following the 2015 season, Richt’s former players still hold a special place in his heart.
Now with the Miami Hurricanes, Richt showed that on Saturday evening after the Hurricanes took down Georgia Tech.
As you can see in the video below, Richt temporarily pauses his postgame interview in order to say hello to former Bulldog J.J. Green, who now plays for the Yellow Jackets:

Richt has a reputation for being one of the classiest guys in college football, and with gestures like this, it’s not hard to see why.
Meanwhile, the Hurricanes are 5-0 and look like one of the top teams in the ACC, if not the entire country.
Green played at Georgia in 2013 and 2014 before deciding to continue his career at Georgia Tech, where he is now a redshirt senior.
