Ex-UGA AD Evans exits Athens with a 'Go Dawgs'

As there’s not really a lot going on as the Fourth of July holiday weekend winds to a close, we’ll go ahead and toss this into a separate post.

As you know doubt have heard by now, Georgia athletic director Damon Evans is now the ex-athletic director at the school.  Ahead of leaving his job tomorrow — and with a fairly good-sized severance booty stuffed in his back pocket — Evans has released a statement again apologizing for embarrassing the institution he once played for and the athletic department he oversaw for six years.

Here’s Evans’ statement:

“I would like to once again offer my sincerest apology to the University of Georgia people — the president and administration, athletic staff and coaches, fans and supporters, and especially the student-athletes. 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.

“I do want to thank all those who have supported me and the Athletic Association over the past six years and would encourage all those in our Association to remember that they are there for the student-athletes. Keep them first and foremost in everything you do. God bless and ‘Go Dawgs.”

    About half a year’s salary and very little future in his chosen profession. May (pure speculation) be looking at a divorce. May be looking to downsize houses in a tough market. Very short trip from penthouse to the outhouse…

    did Evans say: sorry I got caught with that woman in my car and those red panties between my legs! Was this woman a student-athlete? Evans was married with 2 children, quit pick’in on the brother! He couldn’t help himself…so he helped himself!….
