Former Georgia AD Evans consulting for Savannah St
Former Georgia Athletic Director Damon Evans has been hired as a
consultant for Savannah State.
The move was announced Friday by Charles Elmore, a consultant
for advancement and communications for Savannah State president
Elmore told The Associated Press that Evans has no interest in
replacing Marilynn Suggs, who was fired this week as Savannah
State’s athletic director. Evans ”will take no part in personnel
matters” but was hired to look at the athletic department,
including its administration and fund-raising.
Evans’ new role was first reported by the Savannah Morning
He resigned as Georgia’s AD in July 2010 following his DUI
arrest in Atlanta. He pleaded guilty and was sentenced to a year of
probation, a $750 fine and community service.
Evans could not be reached for comment.
