Mark Richt couldn’t stay away from home for too long.
On Wednesday evening, the long-time Georgia coach showed off his new digs Athens — purchasing a second home to remain closer to family. Richt took to Twitter, posting a photo in front of the house with his wife, Katharyn.

After retiring from the Hurricanes program in 2018, Richt settled down in a Destin, Florida home. The former coach and his family will reportedly split time between the two homesteads.
“We will be back-and-forth,” Richt told the Athens Banner-Herald.
Through his 15 years coaching the Bulldogs, Richt put together a pretty stellar resume with the program. Winning became the norm in Athens as he led the team to a 145-51 regular season record as well as a 9-5 record in the postseason. With nine 10-win seasons under his belt, he became the second winningest coach in Georgia history (behind Vince Dooley) with a .740 win percentage.
After he was dismissed in 2015, the coach took a golden opportunity to coach at his alma mater. Through three seasons with the Hurricanes, Richt notched a 26-13 overall record.
With great memories in each state, it’s only fitting he has roots in both locations.
