University of Miami head coach Mark Richt is on his way to gaining his team’s loyalty. And all it cost him was $1 million.
Richt donated the money out of his pocket to go toward a new indoor facility for the Hurrines.
Quarterback Brad Kaaya told the Miami Herald the story of thinking Richt, and Richt’s response was “No one is supposed to know about that.”
No one can be sure how a new indoor facility will translate into wins. But it’s clear that Richt, who has only been at Miami since December, is off to a good start to making his team believe they are on a shared journey.
“That fact right there alone – he doesn’t really care who gets the credit… He just wants it to happen and just has our best interest at heart,” Kaaya said. “I appreciate it and the team certainly does, too.
“An indoor facility is something that we’ve needed for years and I think it’s going to help us and impact how we play.’’
