By the time Georgia hired Greg McGarity as its athletic director, 88 people had applied for the position, many of them with little or no experience in sports management.
Georgia released the full list of applicants Wednesday morning in response to an open-records request from the AJC.
Forty-nine of the names, including McGarity’s, were released Aug. 5 in response to a previous request by the AJC.
New names on the latest list included former Georgia football player Matt Stinchcomb, Missouri executive associate athletic director Whit Babcock and Sacramento State athletic director Terry Wanless.
From AJC correspondent Andy Johnston in Athens:
Receiver Logan Gray was in a walking boot and didn’t practice on Wednesday after turning his ankle in Tuesday’s practice. He is listed as day-to-day, according to UGA.
Gray was one of the offensive highlights in Saturday’s scrimmage with three catches, and offensive coordinator Mike Bobo said Gray “had his best day since he’s been here [Tuesday] and had that ankle sprain.
“He’s done an outstanding job,” Bobo said. “He already had a knowledge of the passing game and what we’re trying to do, but just his improvement daily at the receiver position has been impressive to us as a staff. If he continues to improve and impress and gets healthy, I believe he’ll be in the rotation.”
