Ge­or­gia AD Evans is out

Austin American-Statesman - - SPORTS BRIEFING -

Da­mon Evans, caught up in a drunk-driv­ing episode, will no longer be the Ge­or­gia ath­letic di­rec­tor, ac­cord­ing to The As­so­ci­ated Press. It is un­clear whether Evans re­signed un­der pres­sure or was fired. The school will make a state­ment to­day. Evans has said he “failed mis­er­ably” as a leader and rep­re­sen­ta­tive of Ge­or­gia. He was the SEC’s first black ath­letic di­rec­tor.

More em­bar­rass­ment for Ge­or­gia came when the in­ci­dent re­port of the ar­rest was re­leased, in­clud­ing de­tails about 28-year-old Court­ney Fuhrmann, who was with Evans in his car and was charged with dis­or­derly con­duct. Evans, a 40-year-old mar­ried fa­ther, was found with a “pair of lady’s panties be­tween his legs,” ac­cord­ing to the re­port.
