Maybe this is a sign the reserve fund is brimming these days.
Georgia will send football coach Kirby Smart and new men’s basketball coach Tom Crean on the road this spring and summer to six cities in four states for donor events like the school held last year.
This time, there will be two additional functions that will be open to all Georgia fans that will feature Smart, coming off a trip to the national championship game, and Crean, the former Indiana coach hired this month.
The public events will be in Columbus on May 21 and Savannah on May 22 on the same day that there will be private donor dinners in those cities, according to Georgia executive associate athletic director for development Matt Borman who is also executive director for the Georgia Bulldog Club.
That’s mighty nice of them to throw out a couple of bones at no charge like that. Of course, if you live in the metro Atlanta area, you’re still SOL unless you want to
stroke a check commit to the G.
Really, there are no words of sarcasm worth expressin in reaction to this:
Former football coach Art Briles received $15.1 million from Baylor following his 2016 dismissal during a sexual assault scandal that engulfed his program and the university.
Former President Ken Starr got $4.52 million from the university as part of his departure. Then athletic director Ian McCaw, now the AD at Liberty University, received $761,059, essentially one year’s salary, upon his resignation.
The dollar figures of the settlements surfaced in Baylor’s 990 filing to the IRS, required annually of non-profit organizations, filed this week and obtained by The Dallas Morning News. The settlements had been subject to non-disclosure agreements. All settlement payments have already been made with the funds coming from Baylor’s institutional reserves, according to a university official.
I can only hope that means there’s plenty of money for the victims to seek as damages.
Terry Godwin and his magic hand, that is.
