As Mark Richt gets his 14th season as Georgia’s football coach under way this week at the SEC Media Days, you carries another title with him to Birmingham.
Just call him Grandpa.
The latest addition to the Bulldogs’ first family is Jadyn Elise Richt, born to Mark Richt’s oldest son, Jon Richt, and his wife Anna last Wednesday.
Richt hasn’t commented yet on becoming a first-time grandfather at 54. But, as you might imagine, the whole affair has played out rather publicly over social media.
Jon Richt, 24, played quarterback at Clemson and Mars Hill College before settling in at UGA as an offensive quality control assistant this past spring.
Richt will appear with other UGA coaches Mark Fox and Scott Stricklin at Gwinnett Center before UGA Day on Tuesday evening. Richt will be at SEC Media Days on Thursday. The Bulldogs get their preseason camp under way on August 1.
