Well, this was rather unexpected.

On Sunday, Miami Hurricanes head coach Mark Richt suddenly and unexpectedly retired from the team.

Here’s his statement:

The Miami Hurricanes had a rough year this year, finishing a disappointing 7-6 after starting the season as a top-10 squad in the entire nation.

The season came to a terrible end after the team got trounced 35-3 by a Wisconsin team that was playing a backup quarterback in the Pinstripe Bowl.

Richt was 26-13 during his three years at Miami.
