Mark Richt will be among several college football coaches that will be visiting military bases in the Middle East in May.

The Georgia head coach will join Randy Shannon (Miami), Jack Siedlecki (Yale), Tommy Tuberville (Auburn) and Charlie Weis (Notre Dame) for the May 20-26 trip.

said in a statement. "We want to support them not only in prayer but also in person. I look forward to meeting as many of our men and women in the armed forces as possible during the visit."

The NCAA coaches will participate in meet and greets at various bases, as well as coach flag football teams made up of servicemen and women. They will host a symposium, allowing audience members to ask questions.

"College football is an All-American sport it truly showcases the drive, determination and teamwork that is similar to the U.S. Armed Forces," said Air Force Colonel Edward Shock, Chief of Armed Forces Entertainment in a release. "We are proud to bring this tour to our military men and women, and my hat goes off to these coaches for spending their downtime with our troops."
