Well, this doesn’t sound good.
One member of Georgia’s football recruiting office has been fired and another suspended for 30 days without pay, sources have confirmed to DawgNation.
Dacia King, who is listed as the Bulldogs’ recruiting program coordinator on the team’s website, was dismissed. Lukman Abdulai, who is director of on-campus recruiting, has been placed on a 30-day suspension without pay.
The reason for the actions and whether they are related are not known at this time.
“I’m not talking about any personnel stuff,” Georgia Athletic Director Greg McGarity said. “Regardless of what the position is, I just don’t comment on personnel decisions or matters. Sorry.”
McGarity also declined comment when asked whether violations of NCAA or SEC rules were involved.
Ah, jeez, one only wonders what steps Greg is prepared to take prostrating himself before the NCAA. That always seems to work.
As far as what happened, I don’t know, but King’s job is described as being “a liaison between prospective student-athletes and the Georgia coaching staff and helps plan visits and set itineraries”, so I’d expect whatever went wrong came out of this sphere of operations, since she’s been canned outright.
Obviously, it’ll be 90 days before we learn anything concrete about this, but in terms of rank speculation pulled straight from my ass, I’ll sure be curious to learn how this came out — or, to be more specific, which of Georgia’s rivals tattled.
