SAVANNAH — Former Georgia Athletic Director Damon Evans has been hired as a consultant for Savannah State.
Charles Elmore, a consultant for advancement and communications for Savannah State president Cheryl Dozier, said Friday that Evans has no interest in replacing Marilynn Suggs, who was fired last week as Savannah State’s athletic director.
Elmore said Evans was hired to look at the athletic department, including its administration and fund-raising. Evans’ new role was first reported by the Savannah Morning News.
Evans resigned as Georgia’s AD in July 2010, following his DUI arrest in Atlanta. He pleaded guilty in January to driving under the influence.
