Darryl Richard Earns MBA

Dec. 12, 2008

Darryl Richard capped a memorable two-week period Friday night when he strolled across a stage in Alexander Memorial Coliseum to receive his MBA.

It started two weeks ago, on Nov. 29, when Richard and Georgia Tech snapped a seven-year losing skid to Georgia, beating the 13th-ranked Bulldogs 45-42 in Athens. The win, Tech’s third over a nationally-ranked opponent this season, gave the Yellow Jackets a 9-3 record, a No. 14 ranking in the final BCS standings, and a berth to the Chick-fil-A Bowl.

Six days later, Richard was in Tampa to receive the prestigious Tatum Award. On Monday, the Destrehan (La.) native flew to New York, where he was a finalist for the Draddy Trophy, called by some the “Academic Heisman”. As a finalist, he received an $18,000 postgraduate scholarship.

Then, on Friday night, he received his Masters degree. With one game remaining in his college career, Richard has two degrees from Georgia Tech.
