ChamberSOUTH hosted the University of Miami Head Football Coach Mark Richt as a guest speaker for their end of February Membership breakfast. Coach Mark Richt was able to do In just two seasons as the Hurricanes’ head coach, what many have been attempting to accomplish for years. Mark Richt has made a permanent impact on his alma mater’s football program, on and off the field.
With Coach Richt, the Miami Hurricanes won 10 games in 2017, rising as high as second in the College Football Playoff rankings and also captured the Atlantic Coast Conference’s Coastal Division for the first time in history, earning an invitation to the Capital One Orange Bowl for the first time in over a decade. Richt rightfully won 2017 ACC Coach of the Year honors and was named the 2017 Walter Camp National Coach of the Year. You can positively say that its “great to be a Miami hurricane”.
The audience enjoyed a delicious breakfast while listening Coach Mark Richt address the crowd on how he helps players keep a career post football, and how the Miami Hurricane football program is evolving. The breakfast was appropriately hosted by our friends at the University of Miami, in the elegant WATSCO center hurricane 100 room.
