$1.2 million to coach Georgia


… According to a memorandum of understanding, obtained by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution through state open records laws, (Danna) Durante agreed to a financial package worth more than $1.2 million dollars to coach the Gymdogs.

Durante agreed to a six-year deal that will expire in June 2018 …

… Durante is in Athens this week looking for a house and meeting with her new staff. Georgia has yet to make an announcement but indications are she has hired Philip Ogletree from LSU and Jay Hogue from Denver. …

UGA Sport

Good luck Danna.

Most feel this move is a bad one, however:

… Longtime assistant Doug McAvinn, a vault specialist, is expected to remain at UGA but in a different capacity. He has been with the program 27 years. …


Was Doug forced out?

Or did he take this opportunity to move on?
