Georgia plans to reprint about 14,000 football media guides to replace references to ousted athletics director Damon Evans.
The Bulldogs’ annual media guide, which is distributed to donors and recruits as well as the media, was printed shortly before Evans’ June 30 DUI arrest and subsequent resignation.
“The timing made it a very unusual circumstance,” Georgia associate athletics director Claude Felton told the AJC. “After discussions among Alan Thomas in the development office, [interim AD] Frank Crumley and myself, we felt like the best thing under the circumstances would be to do a partial reprint.”
Approximately 21,000 media guides were in the original printing, Felton said. Although some have been distributed, mostly to media and recruits, the majority remain in boxes.
Georgia hasn’t decided what to do with the thousands of guides that will go unused from the original printing.
It’s good they waited. They can redo the roster while they’re at it.
