UGA Releases Damon Evans Documents

((HT: AJC-Tucker/MyFoxAtlanta))

As part of an open records request that the Atlanta Journal-Constitution had against the University of Georgia in the Damon Evans proceedings, about 500 pages were handed over and Tim Tucker got to wade through them for most of Tuesday afternoon.

The only goofy stuff in the documents is an e-mail from Courtney Fuhrmann, the 28-year-old not Evans' wife, who was in the passenger seat when Evans was pulled over on June 30.

Dated May 21, in part:

"Wanted to thank you all again for last night. We had a great time and it is always refreshing meeting what is the phrase of the night - good people. Hope everyone made it home safe. Look us up next time you are in town if you like."

Fuhrmann, when questioned by police, said she had known Evans for about a week or so... apparently, she bet the under...

According to Tucker, Evans and Fuhrmann exchanged two other text messages on May 21 and 15 more in the next two weeks. Make of that what you want...

After Evans arrest, he received a fair amount of suportive e-mails from other Athletic Directors, and even some finger-wagging from fans- "Tony In Georgia" writing Evans "You brought shame to UGA."

His personnel file was also a part of the documents released by the school- nothing bad in it, just mostly documentation of his salary structure, raises, and stuff like that.

As a flashback, here's Mark Richt on Evans downfall...
