Miami coach Mark Richt sends well wishes to Georgia in tweet

College Football, Georgia Bulldogs, Miami Hurricanes

Former Georgia coach Mark Richt is entering his second season as head coach at Miami, but he still has fond feelings for the Bulldogs.

Richt, who was the coach at Georgia from 2001 through 2015, posted a tweet Saturday night wishing the Bulldogs well in the upcoming season:

Many of the current players on the Bulldogs' roster were recruited by Richt, who was fired by Georgia after the 2015 season. Shortly after being let go, Richt was named head coach at Miami, his alma mater.

Richt was replaced at Georgia by Kirby Smart, who was the running backs coach under Richt in 2005. Smart responded to Richt's tweet later Saturday.

Both coaches enter the season with high expectations. Miami is a favorite to win the ACC Coastal division this season, and Georgia is again a favorite to win the SEC East.

The Hurricanes open at home against Bethune-Cookman on Sept. 2, and Georgia will host Appalachian State on Sept. 2.
