Georgia State will honor Bill Curry, the architect of the football program who is retiring from coaching after the season, before and during Saturday’s 3:30 p.m. game against Old Dominion in a variety of ways:
- After the team’s 12 seniors are honored, Curry will receive a special presentation from University president Mark Becker and athletics director Cheryl Levick.
- Curry’s wife, Carolyn, will participate in the coin toss.
- Georgia State’s marching band will honor him by spelling out “Curry” in its pre-game formation.
- During the game, tributes from Curry’s former players, coaches and colleagues will be played on the Georgia Dome’s video board.
- The Georgia Lottery Corporation will give rally towels featuring Curry’s signature to the first 3,000 fans through the gates.
All if it will be a bit much for Curry, who earlier this week said, “I don’t know about honoring anybody.
“If I deserve to be honored that would be nice, but I don’t. I’m just here to work.”
