Mark Richt's "UGA Day" tour schedule

semerson@macon.comApril 5, 2013 

Georgia has officially revealed the schedule for Mark Richt's spring speaking tour. You can read all the details below.

One side note: Although Georgia has spring practices next Tuesday and Thursday, Richt will still be attending UGA days each night - in Columbus and Dallas-Fort Worth. Yes, really, this has been verified.

On Tuesday, Richt will leave immediately after practice and fly to Columbus, which is actually somewhat reasonable considering it's such a short flight.

But two days later Richt will fly all the way to Texas right after holding Georgia's final spring practice. It was important to make it work, Bulldog Club director Mark Slonaker told me, partly because since Matt Stafford the school has received an inordinate amount of applications from the Dallas area. So they want to show some loyalty back.

Richt is going to attend every UGA event, as usual, while men's basketball head coach Mark Fox will miss several of them, including the first two. Fox will be in Macon on April 18, which happens to fall two days after the NCAA deadline to declare for the draft.
