TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — Mark Richt spent over a decade in Tallahassee first as a graduate assistant, then returning to coach quarterbacks, and later adding offensive coordinator to that title. He went on to be a head coach at Georgia and at Miami.

Richt was back in Tallahassee Tuesday, speaking to the Tallahassee Quarterback Club. He said he had a chance to check out the campus before the event, where he relived some great memories. Richt is now a broadcaster for the ACC Network, and of what'll it take for Florida State to get back to where they were when he was here? Time.

"People have to have patience," he said. "Hopefully this year, Coach Norvell will have the chance to do the things he needs to do and wants to do to really establish the way they want to do things and find out what guys really want to be here, whether they want to put in the work."

The coach said he thought the early favorite to win the ACC was Clemson.
