It's a tradition unlike no other, and Mark Richt has brought it with him to Miami. Richt's annual backflip off the ten-meter dive platform was an annual event during fall practice when he was the head coach at Georgia. Now he has brought the tradition to Miami, where the first-year Hurricanes her coach performed a backflip on Friday during his first annual "Paradise Camp" for Miami prospects.
Miami wide receivers coach Ron Dugans was one of many observers at the camp captured the moment, and shared it on Twitter.

Richt traditionally performed the backflip during a "pool day" during the Bulldogs' fall camp. So there could be a possibility of another trip to the pool when the Hurricanes 2016 fall camp commences.
