Brian Kelly - ND Coaches Clinic

Mark Richt To Serve As Guest Speaker At The 2019 Notre Dame Coaches Clinic

NOTRE DAME, Ind. — Mark Richt, former head coach at the University of Georgia and University of Miami, will be one of the featured guest speakers at the 2019 University of Notre Dame Football Coaches Clinic on March 28-30. Dick Corbett Head Football Coach Brian Kelly, all of his assistant coaches and Director of Sports Performance Matt Balis will give presentations at the clinic.

At the time of his retirement, after 18 years as a head coach at the Football Bowl Subdivision level, Richt’s 171 career wins ranked fourth among active FBS head coaches and his .734 winning percentage ranked as the seventh best among current FBS coaches with at least five years of experience. 

Richt went 26-13 in his three years at Miami, including a 10-win campaign in 2017.

Richt compiled a 145-51 overall record and an 85-40 mark in Southeastern Conference play over his 15-year career at Georgia. The Bulldogs won two SEC championships, six SEC East titles and nine bowl games under Richt, and finished the season in the Associated Press top-10 rankings seven times. Richt is one of only seven head coaches in SEC history to record four straight 10-win seasons (2002-05).

Before his arrival at Georgia, Richt spent 11 seasons at Florida State, the last seven as the offensive coordinator. In his time in Tallahassee, the Seminoles finished in the nation’s top five in scoring offense on five occasions, top 12 in total offense five times and top 12 in passing offense five times. FSU won two national championships (1993, 1999) and played for the national championship in 2000. The 2000 team finished the regular season ranked first nationally in total offense (549.0 ypg) and passing offense (384.0 ypg), and third in scoring offense (42.4 ppg).

Richt launched his coaching career at Florida State, first as a graduate assistant from 1985-86 and then as a volunteer assistant from 1987-88. He spent the 1989 season as the offensive coordinator at East Carolina before returning to FSU as the quarterbacks coach.

Coaches and participants interested in receiving advanced football instruction from the Notre Dame coaching staff and featured guest speakers are welcome to attend.

All 10 Notre Dame assistant coaches will provide a drill-based presentation followed by chalk-talk sessions, which will give attendees an excellent opportunity to become familiar with various coaching techniques and offer professional development with other coaches and participants.

In addition to various presentations, participants will get an exclusive look at the 2019 Irish football team and access to coaches’ socials both Thursday and Friday evenings, a strength & conditioning clinic and Notre Dame Stadium, including the South Club and the Irish locker room for exclusive events. 

Vendors and exhibitors from around the country will also showcase football-related products.
