Regardless of whether you feel Jim Donnan got a raw deal when he was dismissed as Georgia’s head coach, you’ve got to admit that the man wasn’t without flaws about how he ran the football program. For one thing, people handling skills were never Coach Donnan’s strong suit.
Dunta Robinson gives us one example.
… and the Athens product will forever stew over having been passed over by the hometown Bulldogs.
“Their coach, Jim Donnan, has said he had nothing to do with it,” Robinson said. “He said it was the recruiting coordinator [Rodney Garner]. I still blame Donnan. He’s the coach. He should have overruled everybody.”
Seriously, how lame is it for a head coach to tell an eighteen-year old that he has no control over who gets a scholarship offer?
I bet Garner loved getting thrown under the bus, too.
