Vince Dooley has had an enduring impact on the University of Georgia, the Southeastern Conference and collegiate athletics across the country for nearly 50 years. As the university’s head football coach from 1963 to 1988, he guided the Bulldogs to a career record of 201-77-10 and took the team to 20 Bowl games. After the team’s national championship victory in 1980, Dooley was named NCAA National Coach of the Year by every major poll. Under his watch as athletic director (1979 to 2004), University of Georgia teams won 23 national championships and numerous individual titles in men’s and women’s sports. Dooley is the only person to serve as president of both the American Football
Coaches Association and the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics.
