Former Georgia head coach Mark Richt suffers heart attack

He said he plans to be at work this week.

ATLANTA — Former Georgia and Miami head coach Mark Richt is recovering after a heart attack Monday morning. 

The 59-year-old analyst for ACC Network acknowledged his health scare on Twitter and says he's "doing fine."

"As I went through the experience I had peace knowing I was going to heaven but I was going to miss my wife," he added.

He said he plans to be at work this week.

Richt was fired at Georgia in 2015 after a 15-year run and contemplated taking time off from coaching. Instead, he went to his alma mater for three seasons before retiring in December of 2018.

Richt went 26-13 at Miami and 145-51 in 15 years at Georgia.
