Georgia is holding two August events in the state for Bulldog fans that will feature some of its head coaches but not football coach Kirby Smart.
Men’s basketball coach Mark Fox, gymnastics coach Courtney Kupets Carter, baseball coach Scott Stricklin and football staffer Mike Cavan will take part in a panel discussion Aug. 9 in Valdosta.
Fox, women’s basketball coach Joni Taylor, men’s golf coach Chris Haack and Cavan, Smart’s special assistant, will be on the panel Aug. 10 in an event in Columbus.
The events are characterized by the school as an outreach program. They were organized by the UGA Bulldog Club, are being called “Dawg Days” and will be emceed by radio voice Scott Howard.
“These events will be open to the public and focus on allowing current Bulldog Club members the chance to interact with UGA staff members and educate UGA Fans who are not involved on how to support UGA Athletics,” according to an announcement from Georgia.
Smart will be a part of a separate donor event July 19 in Atlanta’s Buckhead that is invitation only and organized by the president’s office. He attended four similar events this spring in Charlotte, Nashville, Jacksonville and Houston. [Emphasis added.]
“… and educate UGA Fans who are not involved on how to support UGA Athletics”? Oh, I think we’ve already got that part figured out, homes.
