Two former Georgia football coaches, Ray Goff and Jim Donnan, decided to live in Athens even after getting fired from their jobs.
Damon Evans apparently didn’t feel quite as comfortable staying in his old neighborhood.
Evans, who recently resigned under pressure from his position as athletic director after being charged with a DUI just before midnight June 30, has put his $850,000 home in Bogart up for sale, according to this listing in Realtor.com. The five-bedroom home, which sits on 1.55 acres and was built in 2005, was added to listings July 13.
Evans has not spoken publicly since his resignation was announced July 5. He released a statement, saying: “It had been my hope since taking the job in 2004 that I would have a long career at UGA. But because of a serious mistake in judgment, that won’t be the case and I understand that I have a long road to rebuilding my reputation and career.”
School president Michael Adams immediately named Frank Crumley as interim athletic director and began a search for a permanent replacement.
Evans was said to have left town to join his family in Boston. Also arrested and with Evans just before midnight on June 30 was a woman, Courtney Fuhrmann, who was charged with disorderly conduct. Evans’ wife, Kerri, appeared with him at his last news conference in Athens July 1.
