VIDEO: Mark Richt Nails His Annual High-Dive Backflip

Miami football coach Mark Richt has had years of practice perfecting his annual tradition.

Every year, Richt steps onto the high dive and performs a backflip for his players. This year, Richt nailed the move much to the joy of everyone who was watching.

The 57-year-old head coach first began the back flip tradition during his time with the Georgia Bulldogs, before continuing it at Miami.

Richt’s love for the backflip off the high dive first began when he was a student at the University of Miami.

During his time on campus as a student, Richt learned the move from a University of Miami student named Greg Louganis. Yes, the same Greg Louganis who would go on to win four Olympic gold medals and five World Championships golds.

Richt couldn’t have asked for a better teacher and it’s clear his years of practice have paid off.
