Greg McGarityGreg McGarity will be announced as the new Director of Athletics at the University of Georgia, various sources have reported. President Michael Adams has called a 4:00 p.m. news conference today to “discuss the status of the search for the next UGA athletics director.”

McGarity is currently the Executive Senior Associate Director at the University of Florida. He was hired away from Georgia in 1992 by new Florida AD Jeremy Foley.

McGarity is a 1976 graduate of UGA with a degree in journalism and was a letterman on the 1973 Bulldogs tennis team.

Damon Evans resigned as athletics director at Georgia on July 5, 2010 after being arrested and charged with DUI in June. McGarity was a finalist for the AD position in 2003 before Evans was ultimately hired.

This time around, Greg McGarity has been selected over 48 other candidates.
