Richt: Parkinson’s may date back to final seasons in Athens

Former Bulldog coach announced diagnosis earlier this month

Mark Richt may have been suffering symptoms of Parkinson’s disease as far back as his final years coaching at Georgia.

Richt, who coached the Bulldogs from 2001-2015 before finishing his career at Miami, Fla., from 2016-2018, was diagnosed with Parkinson’s in May but didn’t reveal it until July 1.

“Even going back as far as Georgia, just my energy seemed depleted,” Richt said on Wednesday night in a small group chat, per ESPN. “You know, working 15 years at Georgia could do that, too, so you didn’t really know what it was.
