Miami football: Mark Richt brings high dive tradition to Coral Gables
Mark Richt learned how to backflip off a high dive when he was young to impress girls.
He took that skill with him to Athens, Ga., when he became the head coach of the Georgia Bulldogs, and, for 15 seasons, he would dust off the old trick and impress his players during training camp.
This summer, Richt is in Coral Gables, Fla., instead of Athens for his first training camp with the Miami Hurricanes since taking over the head coaching position back in December.
Lucky for us, some things never change, and Richt brought his high dive tradition down south with him.

Yes, it's Miamihttps://t.co/alykSrQjBk
We -- and the Canes -- are still impressed.
