“I have been waddling around lately and people have asked me what’s wrong,” Richt, 61, wrote. “I have decided to tell everyone at the same time. I have been diagnosed with Parkinson’s.
“Truthfully I look at it as a momentarily light affliction compared to the future glory in heaven.”
Richt added that he is “going to enjoy the blessings that I do have” and that he will see TV viewers on the ACC Network, where he has served as a college football analyst since 2019 after retiring from coaching following the 2018 season.
