Dooley Statue Approved

Following a public and controversial debate on how to best honor longtime UGA football coach and athletic director Vince Dooley, the University System of Georgia’s Board of Regents voted to approve a statue of Dooley to be located adjacent to the University of Georgia’s Butts-Mehre Heritage Hall in a landscaped area with stone walls and metal plaques to be known as the Vince Dooley Athletic Complex. To view a photo of the statue, see the entry for Nov. 29, 2008.
