Damon Evans On The Way Out As Georgia Athletic Director, Announcement Monday


This 4th of July weekend has been full of fireworks at the University of Georgia and there is a report that athletic director Damon Evans' career has blown up.

WSB-TV sports director Zach Klein is citing a source within the UGA athletic department that Evans is out as athletic director.

According to the source, University of Georgia president Michael Adams has asked for and received Evans' resignation.

PM UPDATE: This will go down Monday according to the report from Tim Tucker and Chip Towers from the AJC. A teleconference is set for 11AM with the UGA Athletic Association's executive committee.

Evans was in meetings earlier Sunday with Edward Tolley, the attorney of the UGAA, and someone who identified himself as Damon's father, Sam, to determine an appropriate settlement under the terms of Evans' new contract that had kicked in on July 1.

After those meetings, Damon Evans was said to be with family in Boston.

FOSG Randy Waters tracked down the story in Athens...
