Maryland has hired Damon Evans as AD:
From a previous Terptalk Post- Damon Evans: Like John Currie, Evans was in charge of one of the largest athletic departments in the SEC:
Evans has huge shoes to fill at Georgia as he succeed 25 year athletic director and former UGA national championship winning football coach Vince Dooley. Despite this Evans led the department to be the most profitable one in the country, with gross profit of 23.9 million dollars in 2005, UGA also had the second highest grossing football program in the country in 2007 (only behind Texas). The success came to a grinding halt in 2010 after Evans tried to bribe his way out of the arrest a DUI arrest. Evans was arrested for disorderly conduct following the incident. He resigned later that week.
In 2014 Evans was brought in by former Maryland AD Kevin Anderson to help run the department, after Anderson went on sabbatical last year Evans was promoted to Interim AD. Many, including us at Terptalk believe that he is the front runner for the position.
Evans has been considered the favorite for the position for a while, and we at Terptalk support this choice as a good decision. We believe that Damon has the proven skills to lead the department to new heights in terms of both off and on the field success.
