Billboard supporting Vince Dooley

July 9, 2003

Albany -- South Georgia Bulldog alumni and fans are showing their support for longtime University of Georgia athletic director Vince Dooley. A billboard supporting Dooley is now up on Westover Road in Northwest Albany.

Former Bulldog All- American football player Bill Stanfill is one of the South Georgians backing Dooley in his attempt to extend his contract. University President Michael Adams has insisted Dooley stick with his contract, calling for him to step down in June 2004.

 Stanfill says Dooley helped the University of Georgia athletics make dramatic improvements since he became football coach in 1964.

 Stanfill said "After 40 years of service, for him to go out very unceremoniously after what all he has meant to the University of Georgia and done for the University of Georgia, I find this incomprehensible, and so do a lot of other Georgia people."

Bill Stanfill, a member of the Bulldogs Circle of Honor advisory board, and other Georgia alumni in Albany raised over one thousand dollars to put up the billboard.

 He also designed and printed bumper stickers being seen around the state. They say President Adams is a "Dam sorry Dawg."
