I know it’s hard to switch off the Mark Richt Hot Seat channel, so I shouldn’t be surprised at the number of media folks already surmising that Damon Evans’ departure is bad news for Mark Richt, but based on this quote…
Meanwhile, I keep thinking about that meeting barely five months ago -– Feb. 3 -– at which the Athletic Board expressed its enthusiastic approval of Evans’ job performance by giving him a new five-year contract and a $110,000-a-year raise.
At that meeting, UGA President Michael Adams said of Evans: “He’s already become a nationally recognized figure in athletics, and we are fortunate to have him. . . . I think he’s done an extraordinary job. . . . And there’s not been a whiff of impropriety during that six-year period. If you’re the president of an institution, that means a whole lot.”
… shouldn’t the question being raised about now instead be about Michael Adams’ judgment? How come nobody speculates about the temperature of his seat?
