Former Georgia football Head Coach Mark Richt suffered a heart attack early on Monday but posted on his Twitter account that he is doing fine.

The former coach was quick with the humor given his situation, though.

And Verron Haynes posted an update on Richt later on Monday evening:

A number of Richt’s former players responded with Tweets of well-wishes.

Mark Richt coached the University of Georgia football team for 15 years from 2001-2015, winning two SEC Championships, and is currently the second-winningest coach in the program’s history with 145-51 record only behind Vince Dooley. After Georgia, Richt went on to take the head coaching duties at his former Alma mater, the University of Miami, from 2016-2018.

Bulldawg Illustrated would like to wish the former head coach and speedy recovery and our thoughts are with him and his family.
