ESPN– Miami Hurricanes head coach Mark Richt announced his retirement Sunday after compiling a 26-13 record the past three seasons at his alma mater.
Richt’s announcement came only three days after the Hurricanes lost to Wisconsin 35-3 in the New Era Pinstripe Bowl, which dropped their record to 7-6.
In a statement, Richt, 58, said he informed Miami athletic director Blake James of his decision on Sunday morning.
“The decision came after a great deal of thought, discussions with my family, and prayer,” Richt said in the statement. “This was my decision.
“The University of Miami has been a part of my life for more than three decades. It shaped me as a young man and provided me with the coaching opportunity of a lifetime. My love for The U is simply great.
