As you'd expect, Miami Hurricanes past and present took to Twitter to respond to the news that Mark Richt had agreed to become Miami's next coach. Not surprisingly, considering the name and Richt's history, most of the reactions are positive.
We'll start with the reaction of former Miami offensive tackle, and current Buffalo Bill, Seantrel Henderson. He compared his feelings about Richt to when he was still playing at Miami and heard the news the school had hired Al Golden.
Let's just say Henderson's a bit more excited this time around.
Mark Richt? Finally we get a winner!! He was one play away from winning the National Championship a couple years ago. No Temple this time!— Seantrel Henderson (@66_Henderson) December 2, 2015
You should have seen our team meeting last time when they told us who our coach was going to be. Everyone was like Temple? Who?— Seantrel Henderson (@66_Henderson) December 2, 2015
I'm sure this team meeting will be a lot different. We all had to pull out our phones and Google Temple football coach to see who it was.— Seantrel Henderson (@66_Henderson) December 2, 2015
I'm fired up for @MarkRicht to get us back to where we belong!— Seantrel Henderson (@66_Henderson) December 2, 2015
I'm sure Al Golden appreciates it, Seantrel. Anyway, here's the reaction from others.

Of course, one of the people we're still waiting to hear from is Uncle Luke himself, Luther Campbell. The world holds its breath waiting for his approval.
