UGA Athletic Director ousted

Posted: Updated:

Atlanta - Damon Evans has resigned as the University of Georgia's athletic director less than a week after he was arrested on a DUI charge.

School president Michael Adams made the announcement Monday following a conference call with the executive committee of the athletic association's board of directors.

Adams says he'll have no further comment until Tuesday.

Evans was arrested late Wednesday in Atlanta. He was charged with DUI and failure to maintain a lane. Also arrested with him was 28-year old Courtney Fuhrmann, who was charged with disorderly conduct.

Evans became the Southeastern Conference's first black athletic director in 2004.

There was no immediate word on a replacement.
