ATHENS, GA (WRDW/WAGT) - Vince Dooley is already a Georgia legend, but now, his name will become part of UGA history forever.

That’s because the University of Georgia has announced that they’re naming the field at Sanford Stadium after the legendary coach and athletics director.

“Coach Dooley’s many contributions to this university can be seen across campus,” said University of Georgia President Jere W. Morehead in a statement, “from Georgia athletics, where he achieved unrivaled success, to the learning environment, where today many academic programs and initiatives bear his name, such as the Dooley Library Endowment Fund to the Dooley Professorship in Horticulture. The university community will continue to benefit from his service and dedication for generations to come.”
