Staff changes at UGA

Georgia has promoted director of football operations Josh Brooks to assistant athletic director of internal operations.

In his new job, Brooks, 30, will assume many of the duties previously handled by Arthur Johnson, who recently resigned as associate athletic director/internal operations to take a job at Texas.

Brooks just completed his first year as football operations director after serving two years as the assistant director.

To replace Brooks as director of football operations, Georgia coach Mark Richt promoted Brad Hutcherson, who had been a graduate assistant.

Georgia athletic director Greg McGarity also amended the titles of a number of athletics department officials, although their duties remain largely the same as before.

Title changes include: Carla Williams from senior associate athletic director/senior women’s sports administrator to executive associate athletic director; Claude Felton from associate AD/sports communications to senior associate AD; Glada Horvat from assistant AD/academics and eligibility to senior associate AD; Eric Baumgartner from assistant AD/compliance to associate AD; Ted White from director of academic services to associate AD; Tim Cearley from ticket operations director to assistant AD; and Ron Courson from director of sports medicine to assistant AD.

Dawg players arrested in the last year along- TWELVE

Well, this is welcome change that will surely end all our problems and take us directly to a National Championship in 2011! Glad to see that our UGA football program has pinpointed the source of our troubles and completely righted the ship. Who knew all we needed was updated business cards?

And now that everybody’s received their new fancier titles, maybe one of them can maybe figure out how to use a typewriter and issue a press release on whether Searles is gone or not? 3 days of no comment is as pathetic as our scoreboards. I’m a graduate alum and my level of embarrassment at this organization could not sink any lower.

Didn’t HE announce that he was gone, why do you need a presser from the athletic department? The sun is shining and the weekend is upon us. Get outside or indulge a favorite hobby today.

I will admit Mitchell was a huge pick up. I think he will do great things at UGA. My question to dawg fans is. Will Mark be there to coach these guys up or will there be a new coach next year? If you start 0-2 you could be in huge trouble.

First off it’s spelled S-A-B-A-N and second it’s not players in jail you count in Alabama it’s players told to transfer, placed on Medical hardship or pushed out to make run for all the players oversigned every year.

I have said it earlier in the season and will say it again, UGA will have a different attitude next year. We all agree that Richt might have been slipping, he gets it and has been working his tail off to turn this thing around. I am with you coach!

Dang – Is McGarity trying to set a record for the number of levels of management? He is at 6 by my count
Athletic Director (McGarity)
Executive Associate Athletic Director
Senior Associate Athletic Director
Associate Athletic Director
Senior Assistant Athletic Director
Assistant Athletic Director

Seems meaningless and a little absurd

IT’s odd how Saban & Petrino have 7 year contracts, Muschamp & Chizit have 5 year contracts, yet Richt only has a tiny 3 year contract.

Big AL,

You asking JB or any of these other fools to point out a single Bama player who was “cut” to make room for another incoming player is a waste of time. They’re like robots who just regurgitate nonsense. If you ask them to provide proof they have none. These are the same types of morons who would question Tyrone Prothro being taken off football scholarship and being put on medical scholarship.

Forrest Gump,

What was that about Bama players can’t read? Players like Greg McElroy who is a rhodes scholar finalist?

In my day we were graduating players who were functionally illiterate. Matter of fact the entire institution was in on it and even Dooley sr. was in on it. Can you say lack of institutional control?

JB,

Actually we arrested 8 Bama players the first 1 1/2 years Saban was there and we arrested one player a year and a half ago. The difference between UGA and Alabama is that Saban cleaned up the cesspool of thugs although it took him 1 1/2 years to do so. At Georgia its business as usual with 12 arrests last year alone. Sorry but your assertion that the Tusc police don’t arrest Bama players doesn’t hold water given the facts. Just ask Shula and Gene Stallings- David Palmer if the Tusc police arrest Bama players. Clean your cesspool up and quit whining about other programs.

Good News, go Dogs. Got 4 of Rivals top 100, looking at 7. Couple defections from Bama on signing day, and we will be looking good. Mac McWhorter or Hugh Nall for OL coach. Rally Dog Nation, we’ll be back. Why would all the other fans concern themselves with our blog to read much less comment if they weren’t concerned with our success. Keep the Georgia Boys home, promote from within. Go you hairy Dogs.

Awww, are the poor little Bama fans mad they couldn’t get all the recruits they thought they should have gotten just cause they’re Bama? Sad, a team that didn’t do that hot last year just out-recruited you on a couple of prospects.

Also, don’t they have a paper over there in that dumphole Tuscaloser? Or has it been changed into a Meth factory?
